The CBRNE Research and Technology Initiative (CRTI), one of two divisions within the Defence Research and Development Canada (DRDC) Centre for Security Science (CSS), was initiated in 2001 to stimulate Science and Technology (S&T) innovation in the CBRNE domain. Since that time, CRTI has funded many projects involving numerous partners from domestic and international government departments and agencies, as well as academia and industry to enhance Canada’s CBRNE counter-terrorism preparedness. Its success in doing so can be attributed to the collaboration that has been fostered within the CBRNE S&T community. The projects are the result of the many connections that have been made, strengthened and leveraged. Given the importance of collaboration to innovation within the S&T community, the focus of this paper is an investigation of the structure of relations that exist between the projects that were funded by CRTI in the first five years of the program (2001-2006) and the numerous individuals who jointly implemented the projects. The nature and extent of collaboration that exists among those responsible for implementing the projects is revealed, as are recommended ways to enable and improve collaboration within the CBRNE domain.
