Many congratulations to the Strongest LINC team, a group of first year LINCS (Leverhulme Interdisciplinary Network on Cybersecurity and Society) doctoral scholars, who were runners-up in the Atlantic Council 9/12 UK Cyber Challenge competition.

Many congratulations to the Strongest LINC team, a group of first year LINCS (Leverhulme Interdisciplinary Network on Cybersecurity and Society) doctoral scholars, who were runners-up in the Atlantic Council 9/12 UK Cyber Challenge competition on 11th and 12th February 2019 at the BT Tower in London.  The team taking part in this prestigious competition were pipped at the post by a team from Cambridge!  The team members were from the Schools of HAPP and Law - Ciara McHugh, Claire Bevan, Olly Donnelly and Rebekah Corbett and Dr Philip O’Kane from CSIT was their coach.  Their prize is a two day visit to the Cyber Defence Alliance offices in London, as well as an invitation to a more formal dinner in October as their guests.

LINCS at Queen’s University Belfast was established in 2015 and builds on the existing interdisciplinary work between the Centre for Secure Information Technologies (CSIT) in the School of Electronics, Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (EEECS) and the Senator George J. Mitchell Institute for Global Peace, Security and Justice to create a lasting bridge between two of the University’s four Global Research Institutes established as flagships of interdisciplinary research excellence.  LINCS opens up new avenues of enquiry, allowing researchers to develop new collaborations and offer truly interdisciplinary support to its Leverhulme Doctoral Scholars. 

There is still time to apply for the next academic year to be part of this dynamic group of doctoral scholars!  Further information can be found here.
