In 2013 the Trust co-sponsored, along with Handa Centre for the Study of Terrorism and Political Violence and the Centre for the Study of Terrorism and Political Violence at St Andrew's University,  two National Security Fellowship Schemes - aided by Cambridge University's Centre for Science and Policy and RCUK's Global Uncertainties Programme.  The first, in the Spring of 2013, was entitled "Detecting and Countering Improvised Explosive Devices and Home-Made Explosives" and the second, in the Autumn, was on "Horizon-Scanning for Future Terrorist Threats".  The aim of these schemes is to encourage knowledge exchange between researchers in academia and industry and officials/specialists with responsibility in these areas.
