Selected Papers

Performing excellent academic research is the essential objective of the CONCORDIA project.

Our research activities are organized into five tasks, each focusing on a particular aspect of cybersecurity. 

During the project’s lifetime, we produced 324 publications. The total number of papers entered into the EU-ECAS system is even higher since white papers and papers without peer review are not counted. You can find all our publications on our website.
