At the end of November, the Brno-based CyberCampuscz came to life with an exceptional gathering, as we welcomed a delegation of fifteen cybersecurity experts. The historically first Czech-Ukrainian conference on cybersecurity, "Cybersecurity Twister Czechia & Ukraine", organized by CzechInno and CyberSecurityHubcz, marked the beginning of a new chapter in Czech-Ukrainian relations. Representatives from government spheres, universities, clusters, and other business entities came together to share their knowledge and experiences while also offering specific avenues for potential future collaboration.

In an atmosphere of expertise, openness, and a shared determination to forge a new chapter in relations with Ukraine, Ukrainian representatives in Brno also met with representatives from Czech authorities, institutions, and initiatives. The invitation was accepted by experts from the Czech National Cyber and Information Security Agency (NÚKIB), Masaryk University, CSIRT-MU, CyberSecurityHubcz, and the Ministry of Industry and Trade.

The international conference Cybersecurity Twister Czechia & Ukraine presented intriguing opportunities for collaboration between the Czech Republic and Ukraine in the field of cybersecurity. The proposals outlined during the presentations described specific pathways toward successful cooperation.

Memorandums of Cooperation 

The agreement to establish four new Czech-Ukrainian memorandums of cooperation has been reached, encompassing state institutions for cybersecurity, academic institutions, and cluster organizations. These will be followed by specific collaboration initiatives, negotiated during the meetings in Brno between the Ukrainian delegation and CyberSecurityHubcz and Masaryk University, the Brno University of Technology, and representatives of the Brno-based company GreyCortex, whose headquarters were visited by the delegation during their stay in Brno.

The main organizers of the conference were CyberSecurityHubcz and the association CzechInno, with support from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Ministry of Industry and Trade.

Thank you to all participants, and we look forward to more events together! For example, on April 24th at the 'AI Forum Czechia & Ukraine' conference focused on the use of artificial intelligence, including in cybersecurity. We will inform you about the event in advance.
