New + Updated Research Security Requirements for Federal Funding Launch May 1

April 30, 2024

Starting May 1, 2024, new federal research security requirements apply to applications for research funding from the Tri-Agencies and Canada Foundation for Innovation when the project aims to advance certain sensitive technology research areas

These requirements are in addition to the expansion of an existing requirement to complete risk assessment forms when collaborating with private sector partners to include any discipline and additional, select, funding competitions.

We recommend all researchers familiarize themselves with the policies and related guidance, and determine how they may apply to their research.
