Loading player for

The Commonwealth Cyber Initiative (CCI) hosted the invitation-only inaugural CCI Symposium on April 4 – 5, 2022, in Richmond, Virginia.

CCI invited researchers and students working on CCI-funded projects to join us at our first all-hands event to learn more about our programs, network with colleagues, and take advantage of professional development opportunities. We presented the first CCI Impact Award at the event. 

During the symposium, attendees had the opportunity to:

  • Meet with colleagues from across Virginia and find new collaborators
  • Learn about future calls for proposals from top organizations
  • Use Speed Briefings to inform colleagues and potential collaborators about your work
  • Participate in the Student Poster session
  • Receive professional development opportunities in areas such as academic writing, proposal writing, commercializing IP, communicating research, media training, and more
  • Participate in a Design Thinking Sprint 
  • Attend a dinner and award ceremony for the first CCI Impact Award

CCI’s mission focuses on research, workforce development, and innovation at the intersection between cybersecurity, autonomy, and intelligence. Our bold objective is to make Virginia a globally recognized center of excellence in cybersecurity and, in doing so, to contribute to the commonwealth’s economic diversification and prosperity.
