The ULB Cybsersecurity Research Center was founded in 2017 and currenty has 10 professors and over 20 researchers.
The center is a federation of 4 well-established research groups in the domains of cryptography, network security, quantum cryptography, and quantum transmission. Each group has a strong international experience and collaborations with the industry.
The Center members created in 2015 the first Belgian Master of Science in Cybersecurity.
Research is organised in 4 different teams. Each team has a different research focus in the area of cybersecurity:
The ULB Cybersecurity Research Center focuses on the protection of digital transmissions. Our groups develops advanced cybersecurity solutions to protect the Internet of Things (IoT) to develop the future quantum transmission techniques.
The research teams recognize the importance of networking and cooperation. Academic and industry collaboration is highly appreciated and at the core of our research projects.
The Cybersecurity Research Center has strong ties with the Center for Cyber Security Belgium (CCB), the Cybersecurity Coalition and with the Master of Science in Cybersecurity, a joint two-track programme with École Royale Militaire, Université Catholique de Louvain, Université de Namur, Haute École de Bruxelles, Haute École libre de Bruxelles.
