PETRAS National Centre of Excellence: 1st Strategic Research Fund Call for Expressions of Interest

19 June 2019

The PETRAS National Centre of Excellence for IoT Systems Cybersecurity invites proposals from eligible UK higher education institutions (HEIs) for collaborative projects to be undertaken jointly with user partners


Funded by UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) through Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC), this second phase of the PETRAS programme (https://www.petrashub.org) aims to strengthen an already established and successful platform which, since 2016, has coordinated and convened 11 universities and 110 industrial and government User Partners in cross-disciplinary collaboration. PETRAS has created a dynamic shared research agenda that incorporates social and physical science challenges in equal measure and has worked across a broad range of Technology Readiness Levels. Our new ambition is to make a step change in scope, enabling trustworthy Artificial Intelligence (AI) embedded in IoT networks to deliver safe and highly functional solutions.

This call provides an opportunity for the Centre to build upon this foundation to establish an inclusive national centre open to all and to identify and execute the best and the most transformative and impactful projects in this area, which will enable it to continue actively engaging with the user community and effectively responding to the Internet of Things (IoT) developments.
