Empowering Teachers to Trigger Cybersecurity at School is a 2-years project co-funded by the Erasmus+ programme and coordinated by the Naples-based Consorzio CLARA to tackle the issue of cybersecurity and in particular, the spreading of information and training on cybersecurity, starting from key figures in our society: teachers. Teachers can be the driver of this change, their preparation on cybersecurity can support the creation of safer educational environments and transfer of their knowledge to their students.

The partnership is composed of 6 partners coming from 4 countries: Euphoria Net Srl (Italy), Istituto Tecnico Industriale Statale Galileo Ferraris (Italy), The University of Thessaly (Greece), The Miguel Hernández University of Elche (Spain), Belgian IT Academy Support Center (Belgium).


The partners work on developing an open e-learning platform on cybersecurity topics capable of feeding the community of enthusiasts and improving the digital skills and cybersecurity competencies of teachers and their students, developing the ability of teachers to ensure a safe online environment and preparing teachers to train their students on cybersecurity.

The expected final results of this project also include a Cybersecurity Curriculum with 3 macro-modules:

  • The first introductory module in which the basic concepts of security, networking and IoT will be addressed.
  • The second module will be more oriented to develop operational skills in cybersecurity and will enable students to achieve industrial certifications.
  • The third module, at an academic level, will deal with advanced topics such as Cloud Security, IoT Security, e-Government Security & Forensic Security.


Below are some photos from the first international meeting attended by representatives of all project partners.
During the meeting there was also a cybersecurity training activity with over 40 people, with 50% women connected, connected from all the Europe.
