Partner with international and Canadian experts

If they’re not working with the Canadian Armed Forces (CAF), then defence and security science teams are likely working in teams with other partners, including domestic and international organizations, industry, allies, academia and other governments. Combining funding and brainpower is always a more rewarding and effective way of solving scientific or technological challenges.

“As someone who is new to DRDC, I have already learned so much in such a short time. The high-calibre research, the friendly people and the international collaborations make DRDC a fantastic place to work. Knowing that my research will help the Canadian Armed Forces and the defence of Canada is such a rewarding feeling. I’m so thrilled to have joined the DRDC family.”

DRDC’s international relationships are anchored in two multilateral arrangements, the Technical Cooperation Program (TTCP) and the NATO Science and Technology Organisation (NATO STO).

DRDC also oversees a number of cooperative agreements with allied nations to enable allies to share S&T resources in support of mutual public safety challenges and national security priorities. Find out more in our partnerships and opportunities section.
