The School on Applied Cryptography and its Impact on Society, Innovation and Entrepreneurship was the last event organised by the ECRYPT-NET Research Network and took place on 5-8 February, 2019 in Malaga, Spain.
The school has focused on novel and advanced applications of cryptography and has discussed the impact of crypto research to society in a broader context. There were also lectures on good practices of innovation in cryptography and entrepreneurship as well as certification and standardisation of cryptographic primitives.
Since this was the last event of the ECRYPT-NET, the fellows from the network have been given the opportunity to present the research they have been performing during the last 3 years and to reflect on their experience and future opportunities.
The school was organised by Bart Preneel, Svetla Nikova and Saartje Verheyen (COSIC, KU Leuven).
