Consortium lobbies to bring EU IT security agency to Denmark  

A consortium of IT industry associations and universities is pressing hard to bring the planned EU agency for IT security to Denmark

With the European Council preparing to allocate a number of agencies to member states this December, a large number of Danish IT industry organisations and universities have joined forces in a consortium to try to get the new EU agency for IT security located in Denmark. The agency for IT security will initially have a workforce of 30 people and a 5-year budget of DKK 200 million (USD 32 million).


The consortium has already been in contact with the Capital Development Council (Hovedstadens Udviklingsråd) and the Minister for Science, Technology and Innovation Helge Sander. It is also planning to have meetings with both the EU commissioner Erkki Liikanen and the Danish Prime Minister Anders Fogh Rasmussen to make them aware of the consortium's ambitions and the advantages of locating the IT security agency in Denmark.


The consortium comprises Copenhagen University, the IT University, Roskilde University Centre (RUC), Technical University of Denmark (DTU), Copenhagen Business School, the Confederation of Danish Industries' IT association ITEK, Danish IT and the IT Sector Association. The news is reported by the IT newspaper
