On this page, we’ll be sharing videos, text and pictures showcasing how far we’ve come as an institute over the last 20 years as well as plans for the next 20!
The work of our Dawes Centre for Future Crime has generated worldwide media coverage (including a recent spot on BBC's Countryfile programme!) over the past year. Our 'policy briefings’ condense the results of our research into short documents that quickly summarise the work. The briefings are prepared with the help of colleagues in the UCL Department of Science, Technology, Engineering and Public Policy (STEaPP). The following briefings can be downloaded from our website.
- AI-enabled future crime policy briefing
- How Secure is Consumer IoT
- Challenges of Preventing Counterfeit Goods
- Cryptocurrencies and future crime
