The PETRAS National Centre of Excellence for IoT systems cyber security has announced a funding call with up to £4.5M available to UK HEIs for a maximum of 20 collaborative R&D projects each lasting up to 18 months.

There are opportunities to attend one of three webinars to connect with experts across the UK:
- Securing the connected edge (22 July)
- Useful and useable decentralisation (30 July)
- Law, economics, and public value at the edge (5 August)
