The Institute for Security Science & Technology brings together researchers and capabilities from across Imperial College London and external academic partners to tackle security challenges spanning the cyber, physical and social domains.  We engage sponsors and stakeholders in the public and private sectors to understand external requirements, and showcase and support the work of Imperial academics to meet them.

The ISST Affiliates scheme is open to all members of Imperial staff who wish to be associated with the Institute and whose interests align with our mission. If you would like to become a ISST Affiliate or would like more information please complete this form.


Our Affiliates benefit from security sector advice and support for access to funding opportunities, including:

  • Access to advice and support for promoting and translating research outputs to better match sponsor requirements
  • Assistance with proposal preparation, including impact statements
  • Access to our UK and overseas government and business networks for identification of potential project partners, stakeholders, and funders
  • Invitations to meetings, workshops, seminars and relevant external events

 If you wish to pursue a Defence Science and Technology (Dstl) funding call, please notify our Communications and Policy Outreach Officer or Security Science mailbox within two weeks of the deadline.
