Partnerships and opportunities
Partnerships are at the core of Defence Research and Development Canada (DRDC)’s success in delivering science and technology solutions to the Canadian Armed Forces (CAF), the Department of National Defence (DND), and public safety and security communities. Integrating the capabilities of the national and international innovation system, DRDC is able to provide the CAF, DND, as well as public safety and security communities with the advice they need to maintain a technological and knowledge advantage to defend and protect Canada’s interests at home and abroad.
DRDC actively pursues opportunities for defence, safety and security collaboration with partners from other government departments and agencies, industry, academia, and international allies. Engagement activities cross the entire innovation spectrum including scientific and technical information exchange, shared materials and facilities, jointly developed frameworks, trials, exercises, advanced concept technology demonstrations, and consultation with communities of practice.
With its wealth of expertise and specialized facilities, as well as its profound understanding of defence and public safety and security challenges, and given the proximity of its science and technology program developers to CAF, DND, and public safety and security clients, DRDC is a destination of choice for collaborative partnering arrangements.
DRDC is seeking collaborative activities that support its strategic objectives and is developing new engagement mechanisms to offer opportunities for mutually beneficial partnerships and to enhance existing relationships. The objective is to establish novel, agile ways to collaborate that will yield tangible benefits to all involved.
