EU Cyber Direct brings together government officials, researchers, and other relevant actors to explore the main questions surrounding the application of the existing international law in cyberspace, norms of responsible state behaviour, Confidence Building Measures, and efforts to strengthen state and societal resilience in cyberspace.


Through engagement with governments, civil society, private sector, and research institutes, EU Cyber Direct supports EU official cyber dialogues with strategic partners – Brazil, China, India, Japan, South Korea, and the United States – and Latin America and Asia-Pacific regions. Workshops, conferences and meetings organised as part of EU Cyber Direct will contribute to a better understanding of EU cyber diplomacy and cyber resilience policies worldwide.

Knowledge Hub

In an effort to advance knowledge-based policymaking and valuable research, EU Cyber Direct established a Knowledge Hub as a ‘one-stop-shop’.

The Knowledge Hub provides the following types of information:

  • Research and analysis delivered as part of the EU Cyber Direct project;
  • Updates about cyber-related policies and legal developments in the European Union and partner countries; and
  • Research and analysis on cyber-related policies in the EU and partner countries and regions.


EU Cyber Direct

EU Cyber Direct aims to contribute to the development of a secure, stable, and rules-based international order in cyberspace in dialogue with strategic partners and regions.


Through a mix of policy support, research, and outreach activities with carefully selected target groups, coupled with peer-to-peer knowledge sharing and engagement, EU Cyber Direct aims to achieve greater convergence between the policies of the EU and targeted countries: Brazil, China, India, Japan, South Korea, and the United States.
