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, United Kingdom

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.

Kindness in Research Conference

Bush House (NE) 4.17, Strand, King's College London Bush House (NE) 4.17, Strand, King's College London, London, United Kingdom

In trauma-informed research we also acknowledge that anyone can be affected by trauma – including academics, clinicians, and PhD students – and that this is not an inherent sign of vulnerability or weakness but can often be a source of connection, empathy and kindness, leading to better data and more ethical research.

Join us for a discussion on trauma-informed approaches to research and methods. We will bring together a group of researchers and survivor-researchers who have addressed this topic in their work. We will have a mixture of talks, panel discussions and practical workshops. Attendees will leave with a toolkit that they can apply to their own research practice.
