Through the establishment of Collaborative Networks, the Mobilizing Insights in Defence and Security (MINDS) Program increases and diversifies research on defence and security issues in Canada. Defence seeks multi-disciplinary research networks with diverse groups of experts from across Canada and internationally, to work together on specific defence policy challenges. Up to $750,000 in funding will be provided over three years (in two tranches of up to $125,000 annually), allowing for more in-depth and nuanced analysis of key issues.

Networks provide an opportunity for the expert community to benefit from increased funding to pursue creative and innovative research in the field of defence and security, while meeting the Department of National Defence and Canadian Armed Forces’ (DND/CAF) need for relevant and timely advice and broaden the spectrum of expert voices contributing to the conversation. Network members have the opportunity to engage and collaborate with colleagues across the country and around the world to support DND/CAF in addressing policy challenges.
