Academic RISC was formed in November 2014 to address the barriers against greater academic involvement in solving National Security challenges.

We provide government and industry access to expertise and latest knowledge.

How it works

Academic RISC disseminates requests and opportunities in security and resilience from government and industry to academia. We collate inputs from across the network for transmission back to the requesting party.

Academic RISC is currently chaired by Dr Annette Southgate and Professor Andrew Shortland, Cranfield University.

Network members

Network members are UK academic institutions active in areas relevant to security and resilience. We currently have 30 member institutions, with expertise across all relevant disciplines, from shock physics to modern foreign languages.

Get involved
