Congratulations to DPhil Student Arthur Laudrain who has named on a prestigious list of potential future leaders by CIDOB-Santander.

Wolfson DPhil Cyber Security Student Arthur Laudrain has been named one of 35 promising young minds in the Santander-CIDOB 35 under 35 List. The list recognises the work of 35 people under the age of 35 with the potential to become future leaders in their areas of expertise.

Arthur - who is currently on a placement with the Department of Politics and International Relations - was asked if he could provide a brief statement for the Future Leaders Forum, a collaboration between Banco Santander and CIDOB.

The Forum is a platform for the cultivation of ideas among those 35 nominated to the list and an opportunity for them to discuss key issues on the global stage.

Arthur spoke at the event on his vision of EU digital strategic autonomy, defining what it means and what the priorities surrounding it should be.

Speaking on his nomination to the list, Arthur said: ‘It feels very humbling to be surrounded by such an accomplished, engaged, and diverse crowd. I’m very much looking forward to getting to know everyone better and explore potential collaboration.’
