Vincent Briscoe Lecture 2022 with Mircea Geoană

G34, Sir Alexander Fleming Building, Imperial College London, Imperial College Road, London SW7 2AZ G34, Sir Alexander Fleming Building, Imperial College London, Imperial College Road, London

Mircea Geoană, NATO Deputy Secretary General, explores how the nature of competition between the world's great powers is evolving in response to disruptive technologies. In an era of artificial intelligence, quantum computing, and synthetic biology, how and where do the great powers compete with one another? What are they competing for?

He will consider the opportunities that disruptive technologies present to great powers in shaping the parameters of such competition, and the challenges international bodies such as NATO face in navigating these fast-shifting political landscapes.

The Vincent Briscoe Lecture will open with a Welcome Talk from Imperial College London President, Professor Hugh Brady, and will be followed with a drinks reception.

5-6pm: Vincent Briscoe Lecture.

6-7:30pm: Drinks reception.
