Global Uncertainties Programme given renewed focus as Partnership for Conflict, Crime and Security Research
Following a review after its first five years of operation, the Global Uncertainties Programme has become the Partnership for Conflict, Crime and Security Research (PaCCS) and undergone some important changes.
The Partnership will now focus on the core areas of conflict, cybersecurity and transnational organised crime.
The move to a partnership model allows for the concentration of funding in strategic areas while being responsive to new opportunities.
The governance and management structure of the Partnership has also changed to ensure more effective and efficient delivery of activities.
AHRC, EPSRC and ESRC will remain as core members of the Partnership. BBSRC, MRC and STFC will continue their engagement as affiliated members.
The Partnership will build upon collaboration established to date and will continue to develop links with a range of external partners in government, business and third sector organisations.
