The National Science Foundation (NSF) announced $76 million in research grants through its Secure and Trustworthy (SaTC) program.
The grant will provide support for the study of the scientific, engineering and socio-technical aspects of cybersecurity.
The grants support 241 projects across 36 states and 129 institutions and touch on all aspects of the field, including
- network security
- human incentives and behaviors
- the integration of computation with the physical world
The program is aligned with the Federal Cybersecurity Research and Development Strategic Plan, two new strategic plans to protecting and preserving the growing social and economic benefits of cyber systems while ensuring security and privacy.
