RISE, together with KTH and the Swedish Armed Forces, took the initiative for a Swedish Cybercampus a couple of years ago. The establishment is now being supported by the Government, which will contribute financially with SEK 25 million in 2024 and from 2025 SEK 40 million per year.
"The fact that Cybercampus Sweden is now supported by the government is a historic moment for cyber security in Sweden. RISE will contribute with both expertise and unique infrastructure in the form of our Cyber Range where students and researchers will have access to a world-class test facility for cybersecurity, says Shahid Raza, Head of Unit for Digital Security at RISE, Center for Cyber Security.
Cybercampuset's focus is research, innovation, and education, and to be a support for all sectors of society. The campus is currently an interim center at the Royal Institute of Technology, KTH, which has been built up with MSB, Karlstad University, Ericsson, and Saab with support from Vinnova.
