Activity: Participating in or organising an event typesParticipation in conference -Mixed Audience


A two day workshop involving circa 20 science fiction authors, academics and MoD Scientists with discussions leading to the creation of narratives about the far future with potential implications for UK Defence and Security. This workshop will complement and run in parallel with a related but separate activity being led by Dstl, namely the creation of future science and technology inspired concepts by an international cohort of Early Career Scientists.

Text and pictorial narratives of the Future – to be briefed by Dstl staff the day after this workshop to an international cohort of Early Career Scientists as an input to a defence and security ‘game’ aimed at highlighting common shortfalls in capability planning and hence the importance of Futures thinking in Government
