European Cyber Security Challenge 2020 – Dates Changed for 2021

Due to the worldwide pandemic, the ECSC Steering Committee together with the Austrian national planners and the support of the European Agency for Cybersecurity decided to change the dates of the European Cyber Security Challenge 2020 Final scheduled to take place in Vienna this November.

The ECSC Steering Committee considering that the organization of this European event brings together more than 350 young people coming from all over Europe, wants above all to safeguard the health of all participants.

In light of the above, the 6th edition of the European Cyber Security Challenge will take place in Prague, Czech Republic on 2021. Austria will host the event in 2022.

Furthermore, to give a fair chance to all and permit each country to continue with the selection process in serenity we decided to amend the age conditions for participation by adding a year in each category.

We are certain that the enthusiasm and dedication of our young talents will remain as strong as ever and look forward to seeing you all in Prague!
