CLUE is our cyber security research database. We have collected data over 500 research projects from across Europe, with a specific focus on UK research. While we use CLUE to find our next potential products, we also recognise that the information is interesting to the information security community. So we have made all the project information on CLUE freely available to any professionals working in the information security sector.
