Sensitive Technology Research and Affiliations of Concern

The new Policy on Sensitive Technology Research and Affiliations of Concern comes into effect in early 2024. For any grant application from a university that aims to advance a sensitive technology research area, research team members involved in the activities supported by the grant must not be affiliated with, or in receipt of funding or in-kind support, from a university, research institution, or laboratory connected to military, national defence, or state security entities that could pose a risk to Canada’s national security. For such applications, applicants will also be required to attest to their compliance with the policy.
