Conflict, Stability and Security Fund: cyber and technology programme call for bids 2021 to 2022
Closing Date: 26 July 2021
The Conflict, Stability and Security Fund is inviting bids for their cyber and technology programme.
In the recently published Integrated Review, the UK’s vision is to be a leading, responsible cyber power, working with partners to shape cyberspace according to our values.
The aim is to create a cyberspace that is free, open, peaceful and secure, and which benefits all countries and all people. Work on this has already begun, starting with the announcement by the Foreign Secretary of £22 million of new investment in financial year 2021 to 2022 to build cyber-security resilience in developing countries and globally, particularly in Africa and the Indo-Pacific.
Proposals are invited across three separate ‘lots’, to implement international projects that improve online safety overseas, help tackle cybercrime by improving the application of threat intelligence, as well as increasing our understanding of current and emerging cyber, digital, data and tech issues through research and assessments.
Proposals are invited for the following projects:
- lot 1: national and regional online safety campaigns (£1.5 million)
- lot 2: threat intelligence provision and support to defend against and deter cybercrime (£1.5 million)
- lot 3: research and analysis (to deliver Integrated Review objectives)
