2. Objectives

The Objectives of the CFPMN are to:

  • Encourage, enhance, sustain and support interdisciplinary research collaborations between academia, the for-profit and not-for-profit sectors, and other levels of government (excluding federal government departments/agencies), to build a critical mass of expertise and knowledge applicable to the defence and security of Canada;
  • Support basic and applied research, analysis, technology development and knowledge transfer leading to innovative solutions to key Innovation Challenges for defence and security identified by DND and/or its safety and security partners; and
  • Enable researchers from varied disciplines and areas of expertise to work together to demonstrate an added value that each researcher, if funded individually, would not have been able to reach alone.

To promote these objectives, the IDEaS Program anticipates organizing annual symposia on the Innovation Challenge area. Funded Micro-nets will be required to participate to present recent developments in their research, and exchange information with other scientists working in related areas.
