Season’s greetings and Happy New Year

We hope that this holiday message finds you all healthy and thriving. Indeed, it has been a challenging year. Along with the start of EU-HYBNET’s activities, 2020 brought unprecedented change to everyone’s daily lives with the COVID-19 global pandemic. For this reason, we are even more proud of the project’s accomplishments thus far and know that the results achieved would not have been possible without the efforts of our consortium members and all of you who have been working with the EU-HYBNET project.

On behalf of the EU-HYBNET consortium, I want to warmly thank you for supporting us in our first year of activities. Also, I would like to express our sincerest appreciation for the trust you have placed in us and to convey our best wishes for the upcoming holiday season and a prosperous and healthy New Year!

We look forward to working together in the New Year with our ever-expanding EU-HYBNET network countering hybrid threats.

Dr. Päivi Mattila, the Director of Security Research Program Laurea, EU-HYBNET Coordinator
