The International Academic Partnerships for Science and Security (IAPSS) project is a global knowledge exchange hub that brings together academics, government and industry to advance the field of targeted violence and terrorism prevention (TVTP).
Led by the Centre for Research and Evidence in Security Threats (CREST) and the National Counterterrorism Innovation, Technology, and Education Center (NCITE) a DHS Center of Excellence. This international hub offers a platform to deepen knowledge exchange between countries and develop the next generation of leaders.
IAPSS is committed to facilitating a continuous flow of insights and ideas through regular opportunities to share information. This includes a bi-monthly seminar series, an annual international hub meeting, and a cutting-edge digital security magazine. Our goal is to create an environment where the latest research and advancements are shared openly, accelerating progress in the field.
IAPSS recognises the importance of nurturing the next generation of experts and invests in early career researchers through initiatives like PhD scholarships, informal research collaborations, and joint grant development. By empowering emerging scholars, we contribute to the sustained growth of knowledge in terrorism and targeted violence prevention.
