The government's Technology Strategy Board has invited bids for research into improving information security.

 

Organisations and individuals are being invited to take part in a £6 million fund, with an aim to combine academic excellence with the business skills required to turn ideas into innovations that will benefit information systems in the public and private sectors.

 

The board is hoping that a new set of technology-inspired tools, techniques and services and the creation of a new market for complex systems modelling and analysis will be created. Funding is being provided by the Centre for the Protection of National Infrastructure and the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council.
