KTN and CPNI are preparing for the launch of the Trusted Research for Industry Webinar Series, where they will discuss the impact of security risks and what it means for industry when embarking on research projects.

This activity will assist industry in forming long-term, trusted, and secure relationships with academia which are valued by both partners, whilst mitigating against potential security risks to valuable research when collaborating with organisations and research partners.

The dates for the first round of supporting webinars are:

  • Monday 17 May 2021 – Focus on the general audience, all sectors welcome
  • Thursday 20 May 2021- Focus on Health & Life Sciences, Chemistry and Industrial Biotechnology Sectors
  • Monday 24 May 2021 – Focus on Emerging and Enabling (Electronics Sensors and Photonics, ICT), Space, Defence and Security, Industrial Mathematics, Robotics & AI Sectors.

Additional information to follow soon.


Trusted Research is a campaign to raise awareness of the security risks to research collaborations, some of which may have links to nations whose democratic and ethical values are different from our own. This advice has been produced in consultation with academia and industry and is designed to help the UK’s world-leading research and innovation sector get the most out of international collaboration whilst protecting intellectual property (IP), sensitive research and personal information.
