Technological and societal change leads inevitably to new types of crime. The Dawes Centre for Future Crime at UCL identifies emerging crime threats and works to deliver pre-emptive interventions for the benefit of society. The Dawes Centre was founded in 2016 with £7m funding from the Dawes Trust and UCL. The centre focuses on key questions such as "which emerging crimes should we focus on, given limited resources?" and "how can we mitigate future threats?" The Centre has already funded a range of research and PhD work at UCL including on AI-enabled crime, counterfeit goods, cryptocurrency fraud, human trafficking, money laundering, vulnerability of the elderly to cybercrime, and biohacking. This ONLINE Town Hall event will showcase some of our work and offer funding opportunities for collaborative work across UCL.

Please note, this event is for UCL staff, students and alumni only.
