Cybersecurity has become a priority in a rapidly shifting and complex security environment beset by hybrid threats. It has also become an important avenue for national development and for economic competition. Therefore, research in the field has become a priority. Key evolutions at the level of the European Union generate unique opportunities for Romania to increase its stature in the field, especially in the security aspects of the new digital technologies such as AI, quantum computing and more. This is a mix of funding priorities and institutional developments which the article presents in order to craft a Romanian approach to maximizing returns from these developments.
