Cooperative Threat Reduction (CTR) Program: Protecting Chemical and Biological Weapons (CBW)-Relevant Dual-Use Expertise and Tacit Knowledge
This project strengthens awareness and promotes best practices to protect chemical and biological weapons (CBW)-related expertise and tacit knowledge from potential exploitation by revisionist states.
These efforts include:
- Engaging industry, academic, public, and private research institute partners to identify and promulgate best practices and resources from scientific leaders to protect dual-use expertise and tacit knowledge for widespread adoption;
- Raising awareness of potential revisionist state CBW threats and the risks of doing business with sanctioned and disreputable CBW-linked revisionist state entities;
- Developing creative approaches for identifying and engaging non-traditional partners in awareness-raising, networking, and capacity building; and
- Identifying, promulgating, and implementing practitioner-driven best practices to protect dual-use research collaborations, tacit and knowledge, and expertise from potential exploitation by revisionist states.
