The Digital 3 Seas Initiative – a proposition for a set of projects and activities enhancing the Three Seas Initiative with a cyber dimension

The Kosciuszko Institute announces the Digital 3 Seas Initiative – a proposition for a set of projects and activities enhancing the Three Seas Initiative with a cyber dimension.

 

The Three Seas comprises 12 EU countries and 114 million of citizens dwelling upon the territory accounting for over 28 % of the EU, and generating GDP worth USD 1.6 trillion. The ever-changing global security architecture renders the region increasingly vital for actors as varied as the U.S., Great Britain, China or Russia.

Upgrading the Three Seas Initiative by strengthening the digital component, that exists next to transportation and energy components and adding cybersecurity dimension may have geopolitical and geoeconomic consequences far beyond the CEE borders and is a necessary step to take.

Development of digital infrastructure in the face of 5G era, joint investments in technologies such as IoT, blockchain and AI, deepen strategic and tactical cooperation to tackle cyberthreats and disinformation are in the core areas of the Digital 3 Seas Initiative.
