The Director’s Report

Director's report 2017

Professor Paul Taylor, director of CREST, has published a report on CREST’s key achievements.

This past academic year has seen the idea of an independent, national hub for behavioural and social science research on security threats, grow from an initial proposition to an active and influential centre.

The Director’s Report discusses the visible impact of CREST’s work, such as the various outputs (see our resources page) from programmes, commissioned projects and PhD students.

Director of CREST, Professor Paul Taylor, states ‘Building on the momentum of initial excitement, and determining how social science can best meet the needs of our stakeholders, has at times been challenging. But we have overcome these challenges thanks to the relentless hard work of the centre staff and CREST community. This is a community from which we can expect much more in the coming years.

It also acknowledges the huge amount of work that goes on behind the scenes, such as how continued efforts in engaging stakeholders has led to many bilateral projects and contributions.

This is a community from which we can expect much more in the coming years.

The report also gives an overview of CREST personnel and structure and a timeline of the key achievements this year and a summary of research programmes and current commissioned projects, showing their value and performance against ESRC stablished KPIs.
