As the President of the European Commission Ursula von der Leyen said in her recent statement:
“Ukraine belongs in the European Union” and “Kyiv as the capital of Ukraine is the beating heart of
today’s European values”.
This conviction on the indispensable role of Ukraine in Europe’s ecosystems is translated into the country’s importance as a valuable partner of the European cybersecurity communities. The aim of this paper is to highlight the key areas of cooperation between the EU and Ukraine in the field of cybersecurity and to explain how these priorities will be transformed into concrete activities and projects. These chosen activities have been selected based on the input of representatives from both the Ukrainian and European ecosystems who took part in the workshop organised by the European Cyber Security Organisation and the Ministry of Digital Transformation of Ukraine on the 30th of May 2023.
