Proliferator states seek to exploit institutions and scientific professional societies with key technologies and weak defense capabilities to enhance their military and WMD production capabilities. Preventing the transfer of technologies with WMD-applications requires building public awareness within those communities most targeted by proliferator states for their scientific and technological expertise, knowledge, methodologies, and even nascent-stage research.
As part of the CN-TECH programs global engagement, series of workshops will address global nonproliferation objectives by strengthening the ability of government and private sector research institutions to recognize and safeguard high-risk areas of study and research with WMD-applications.
These projects will specifically focus on licit and illicit procurement of advanced technologies (Artificial Intelligence (AI) & sub-fields, Biotechnology, Synthetic biology, Genetics, Computational biology, Microprocessor etc.), controlling access, and preventing the transfer of sensitive knowledge to proliferator states and commercial entities involved in the illicit procurement of advanced technologies for proliferator states WMD and affiliated weapons programs.
