PLuS Alliance launches the Global Security PLuS student prize


King’s College London joined the PLuS Alliance in February 2016. It is a partnership with Arizona State University (ASU) and the University of New South Wales (UNSW) Sydney to find research-led solutions to global challenges and expand access to world-class learning. The PLuS Alliance will harness the collective research strengths of the three universities to address globally significant issues under the broad theme of sustainable development.

Global security is an area of cutting edge research and education within the PLuS Alliance. The Global Security PLuS network is launching to help find research-led solutions to some of our most pressing global challenges. The initiative will be officially launched on Wednesday 19th July in Sydney, Australia. The inaugural student research prize will also be awarded at this launch event.

This prize is open to research students (research Masters or Doctorate) enrolled at the time of submission at ASU, KCL or UNSW.

Students can win $500 in prize money for activity in the areas of biosecurity, violent conflict and war, cybersecurity, terrorism and disasters.

The deadline is 21st June 2017 – apply now!
