The JDI works to bring together UCL departments and/or external stakeholders to put together major multidisciplinary research bids.

We will support your bid through:

  • finding partners
  • proposal writing
  • project management
  • result dissemination

Our recent successes include:

  • £7m EPSRC bid award to establish new national Security Science Doctoral Research Training Centre - UCL SECReT. The bid involved 20 UCL research groups and 35 external partners who agreed, in letters of support, to contribute £10m worth of cash and in-kind support.
  • 3m Euro FP7 bid award for Project RIBS - Resilient Infrastructure and Building Security. The bid involved 4 UCL research groups and 4 European partners.

Key areas of interest

  • We are interested in a wide spectrum of research in the crime and security field, covering bids to a range of funders and research councils. For example: the  Research Councils UK 'Global Uncertainties' programme - "providing security for all in a changing world".
