Technology Strategy BoardEnsuring trust in digital services
Establishing trust and confidence when doing
business and carrying out personal transactions
is a major challenge in the world of digital services.
That is why the Technology Strategy Board,
together with the Research Councils, is investing
more than £14m in innovative research and
development projects in this area. The projects
will help to accelerate the introduction of more
secure and trustworthy information systems and
ensure that the privacy and consent of individuals
The funded projects will develop trusted and
trustworthy tools, technologies and methodologies
to combat the risks that consumers, businesses
and public sector organisations increasingly face
during online transactions. The investment will
also help to create competitive advantage for
UK businesses by building strong capability
in this country and to make home-grown
businesses more globally competitive.
Thirteen major collaborative research
projects, each lasting up to three years
and involving a total of 52 UK companies,
universities and other organisations, will
share £12.84m; 19 shorter projects, each
led by an SME or micro-company and
lasting up to one year, will receive investment
of £1.25 million between them.
This booklet highlights the activities of many
of those projects, all seeking to make our
digital transactions more secure and trusted.
