Enhancing security to support international research collaboration - ‘Trusted Research’



Thursday 10 to Friday 11 February, 2022

This expert-led event follows dialogue on this issue between science ministers from the Nordic and Baltic countries through the Northern Science Ministerial format, as well as a UK-focussed Wilton Park session. It is the first of a series of Wilton Park events to engage international partners on the topic. A range of actors from the UK and Nordic and Baltic countries will come together for an exchange of views on how to get the most out of international scientific collaboration whilst protecting intellectual property, sensitive research and personal information. At this event participants will share their understanding of the threats and risks to research and innovation, consider opportunities for increasing long-term resilience in the face of these risks, and share best practice for implementation.


  • Generating a shared understanding of the threat to research security and how it manifests in practice.
  • Sharing experiences on responses to these threats, exploring new approaches to mitigate risks further while enhancing confidence to underpin international collaboration.

Exploring networks for sharing information on emerging technology, techniques and enabling collaboration.

In association with UK Research and Innovation

Wilton Park reference number: WP1969
