The UK Research Institute in Secure Hardware and Embedded Systems (RISE), funded by the Engineering and Physical Science Research Council (EPSRC) and the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) seeks to identify and address key issues that underpin our understanding of Hardware Security.

The vision for RISE, under the directorship of Professor Máire O’Neill is to create a global centre for research and innovation in hardware security with close engagement with leading industry partners and stakeholders. The aim is to bring together the hardware security community in the UK and build a strong network of national and international research partnerships.

A key focus is to accelerate the industrial uptake of the Institute’s research output and its translation into new products, services and business opportunities for the wider benefit of the UK economy.

RISE is being hosted at the Institute OF Electronics, Communication & Information Technology (ECIT), Queen’s University Belfast.
