The centre will directly address policy needs and enable the UK’s security forces to draw on the very best of academia.

In collaboration with its UK Government defence and national security partners, The Alan Turing Institute is launching a new defence and security applied research centre (ARC), initially supported by £3.5 million. The new ARC will focus on delivering real-world impact to enhance the security of the nation.

It will directly address policy needs and enable the UK’s security forces to draw on the very best of academia to achieve high impact solutions to the most pressing challenges in the field. The emphasis will be on delivering useable outputs - such as software code or demonstrators - aligned to practical and targeted research objectives.

The centre represents a new stage in the Turing’s development of translational research and builds on continued engagement with our defence and national security partners. One aim of this initiative is to prove and de-risk technology before it gets commercialised or adopted in the real world by SMEs and others.
