1 February 2012

Ray Purdy, Senior Research Fellow at UCL Laws, was interviewed by the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) and his comments quoted in an article on the front page of the BBC’s News website. The article ‘Spying on Europe’s farms with satellites and drones’ examines the use of these new technologies within the EU to detect fraud for environmental and farming subsidies. The article covers some of the results of Ray’s research under his grants from the Arts and Humanities Research Council and the Economic and Social Research Council.
