Our Mission

Capacity Building and Foresight

To forecast and analyse opportunities, risks and threats associated with emerging and disruptive technologies, to support in scaling and innovating breakthrough solutions, and to close the capacity and capabilities gap to address global cyber challenges.


The CyberPeace Institute intends to analyse how emerging and disruptive technologies (such as Artificial Intelligence, Brain Machine Interface, 5G, Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality) are impacting and transforming stability in cyberspace. To this end, related opportunities and threats will be identified considering convergence of societal, technical and normative/policy impact and the skill gap it creates. Therefore, the Institute will act as a platform to share innovative approaches and capacity building strategies with the assistance, accountability and advancement communities.

The following mechanisms and areas of focus constitute the Institute's primary means of action under this pillar:

  1. Producing a Disruption Radar
  2. Developing the Institute Innovation Framework
  3. Supporting and co -designing Ad Hoc Capacity Building Collaborative Initiatives

Disruption Radar

The Institute intends to analyse how emerging and disruptive technologies (e.g. Artificial Intelligence, Brain Machine Interface, 5G, Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality) are impacting everyday lives of individuals and communities, addressing both the ways such tools enable and undermine human security. The Institute will build and maintain a publicly available tool building upon the internal effort findings, as well as on its partners and network insights.

Innovation Framework

The Innovation Framework will identify how Institute staff and key stakeholders need to consider in terms of innovation from a technological and human-centric perspectives, notably in terms of skill gap and training requirement analysis to stay up-to-date on disruptions in the cyber field.

Ad Hoc Capacity Building Collaborative Initiatives

The Institute aims at enabling and possibly scaling operational partnerships for cyber capacity building notably with grassroots practitioners and civil society organisations to maximize impact on local communities and individuals, considering the specific human context.
