Biological-Chemical Engagement Program

The focus of the Biological-Chemical Engagement Program was to develop and implement joint research projects that helped transition former biological weapons/chemical weapons (BW/CW) scientists to legitimate civilian research. United States agencies identified the institutes of potential proliferation concern, worked with former BW/CW scientists to develop project proposals of mutual interest, and funded the projects of greatest American interest. The engagement program also funded business planning and business development training for the institutes in question, and funded travel by former weapons scientists to international seminars and workshops to strengthen the scientists’ ties to the international civilian research community.
