Human Dimensions of Cyber Security

EPSRC has up to £5 million available to support collaborative, international and problem-driven projects which address the human dimensions of cyber security.


We are inviting proposals which address the challenges identified at the 'Human Dimensions of Cyber Security' (HDoCS) workshop in 2014. The challenges are titled:

  1. Design, build and measure
  2. A theory of everyone
  3. Risk, trust and response
  4. Understanding people
  5. Evolution of cybercrime

These challenges must be the sole or main focus of any proposal submitted to this call and proposals must clearly and directly address one or more of them. All proposals should have advances in our understanding of cyber security, as represented by the contents of the technical scope, as their main aim.
