Role of the VU

In the starting phase of the project, the consortium will form a number of working groups. Each working group will focus on one specific threat (e.g., malicious code and malware propagation, social engineering and fraud, etc.) The Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam will be leading one of the working groups.
