Researchers from the University of Plymouth were among the experts invited to brief politicians and parliamentary staff on latest evidence that could be used to inform future policymaking in Parliament.
Academics from the International Marine Litter Research Unit and the Maritime Cyber Threats Research Group took part in Parliament’s Evidence Week.
They met with a number of MPs and peers to make them aware of recent research carried out by the two research groups and its potential impact at a national level.
Professor Kevin Jones
, Executive Dean of Science and Engineering, and Lecturer in Cyber Security Dr Kimberly Tam
also spoke about their pioneering work to understand and address the threats posed by maritime cyber-attacks, including research being carried out in the University’s world-leading Cyber-SHIP Lab.
The event formed part of ongoing activity by the University to engage directly with policy makers and ensure its research has the widest possible impact.
