Over the last decade Lancaster University has made significant contributions in security research, culminating in our recent award as an Academic Centre of Excellence in Cyber Security Research by the EPSRC and GCHQ.

Security Lancaster, a multi-disciplinary research centre developing the science underpinning the security and protection domain, will be officially launched on Thursday 18th October 2012, 3:30pm - 6pm.


The afternoon will showcase some of the cutting edge research in security and protection sciences at Lancaster University with a panel discussion from some of our leading academics and an exhibition from our promising postgraduate students.
