for the Center for Long-Term Cybersecurity  
A grant to the University of California at Berkeley will support the ongoing work of the Center for Long-Term Cybersecurity, the home of this research and engagement at the university. The center focuses on both the “cyber” and “security” components of cybersecurity, grounding efforts in a robust, flexible, and evolving understanding of the “possibility” space of cybersecurity. Research will focus on possible security scenarios and explore the technical, political, and economic intersection of these potential futures. The aim of this approach is to foster interdisciplinary collaboration within the center as well as to add diversity to the cybersecurity conversation. The center brings together academics from the School of Information, the School of Law, Computer Science, the Goldman School of Public Policy, and the College of Engineering, among others. It also engages external stakeholders in all facets of this work, including in outreach efforts. (Strategy: Talent Pipeline)
