Virtual Event Virtual Event
The report discusses the deepening ties between UK universities, the arms industry and military research and maps the history of the so-called “Military-Industrial-Academic Complex”.
It specifically highlights “Militarized Environmental Technologies” as a key area of increasing militarised research: technologies that seek to reduce the environmental impact of military activities but which are also used to gain military advantage, and as a propaganda tool to “greenwash” the fundamentally unsustainable business of war.
