UCL SECReT holds over 30 events annually aimed at presenting the latest science and policy matters in the crime and security arena. Our events are intended for different audiences and include:
Our conferences are open to all and include the National Crime Mapping Conference, the International Crime Science Conference and the National Environmental Crime Conference.
Industry engagement evening
This event is designed specifically to create mutually beneficial interactions between industry and public-sector organisations and the students of UCL SECReT. Industry/public sector organisations can gain by accessing some of the brightest minds in the UK to work on real-world research problems central to their own agendas, whilst students benefit from mentorship, access to data, facilities and practitioner expertise. The evening includes a briefing, for current and prospective partners, of the aims, structure and focus of the centre, and the format and content of the course.
Our current batch of 17 students will introduce themselves and their research interests by presenting ‘crime scenarios’ (it will be up the audience to decide which team has done the best job!) The students come from a range of backgrounds and research interests ranging from forensic and computer sciences through to engineering, laws, risk, intelligence and psychology. Their profiles can be accessed here.

Benefiting industry and students
We expect our students to work on ‘real-world’ problems. This event is designed to create mutually beneficial interactions between organisations and the students of UCL SECReT. Organisations can gain by accessing some of the brightest minds in the UK to work on real-world research problems central to their own agendas, whilst students benefit from mentorship, access to data, facilities and practitioner expertise. The students come from a range of backgrounds and research interests ranging from forensic and computer sciences through to engineering, laws, risk, intelligence and psychology.
Each year UCL SECReT organises an open evening at which prospective students of the course can come along and learn more about the programme. The open evening includes presentations by programme leaders about the vision and goals of the centre, the modules involved in the course, our areas of research, and the wider activities that students will participate in as part of their four-year training programme, and also the application and scholarship award process.
Students will be able to meet course academics and current students from the programme.
