PSC Safeguarding Science workshop

Faculty members, staff (i.e., Research staff, Safety Office staff, Research Ethics staff, and Information Systems & Technology staff involved in research using biological, chemical, radiological, or nuclear materials or technology) and students, are invited to join Public Safety Canada (PSC) for the Safeguarding Science workshop.

The purpose of the 90-minute workshop, offered by Public Safety’s Research Security Centre, is to raise awareness within Canada's scientific and academic communities about research security-related issues. The primary objective of this workshop is to explain the potential for misuse of dual-use research, technology and materials, along with possible risk indicators and mitigation tools to protect Canadian research assets.

Throughout the summer and fall 2024 there are several virtual events that are scheduled. See the list below for upcoming dates or visit Public Safety Canada website.
