Warwick/IPT Policy Briefings

This podcast series is the result of a partnership between the University of Warwick and the Industry and Parliament Trust, an independent charity that works to bring members of parliament and industry leaders together to exchange ideas and experience through a range of activities including fellowships, training and seminars. In these podcasts, policy-makers and business leaders meet academics from the University of Warwick to discuss issues that are high on the policy agenda and hear about the latest research in the field. This year our speakers are discussing topics including cyber security, China in the 21st century, and the future of UK food security. You can also find a briefing paper on each topic, written by the Warwick expert, at
