Roundtable Discussion: Building Resilience in the UK’s Electromagnetic Environment


In February the Office for the Police Chief Scientific Adviser attended a two-day roundtable hosted by Cranfield University and the Centre for Science and Policy (CSaP) from the University of Cambridge.

The roundtable drew together experts from academia, policing, government, and industry to look at how to improve the resilience of the electromagnetic environment of the UK. The role of the police and other emergency services was agreed to be critical in organising a response to electronic interference.  The overall recommendation was to foster collaboration between industry, academia and government, and to promote research in the area of Electromagnetic Environment resilience. Several, more specific recommendations were made for different sectors of the scientific ecosystem.
