We are thrilled to announce the launch of the BASIC-N Square Network Map of departments, organisations and scholars working on nuclear threat reduction in the United Kingdom. This map is intended as a ‘gift’ to the community, with hopes that it will serve as a useful tool to build connections amongst those of us based in the UK.

The production of this map was kindly funded by N Square and the New Venture Fund.
