Investing in the Future

Lancaster University's £19m investment in its Security and Protection Science research, innovation and educational capabilities comes as the government invests £5bn to establish the National Cyber Force in Samlesbury, a move which will catalyse the development of the North West Cyber Corridor, from GCHQ's headquarters in Manchester, through Lancashire and beyond.

The flagship Security and Protection Science programme builds on Lancaster's credentials as a world leader in cyber security and wider protection science, with its cross-disciplinary expertise supported through being one of a small handful of universities nationally to be recognised by the National Cyber Security Centre as an Academic Centre of Excellence in Cyber Security Research and Cyber Security Education.

The University is creating more than 30 new cross-disciplinary academic roles and 15 new professors in practice from across the private and public sectors, plus 10 new professional support staff, while regenerating the south end of its Bailrigg Campus to create a state-of-the-art Data Cyber Quarter. This will result in further world-leading capability at the University helping enable security, resilience and prosperity in increasingly uncertain times
