SPNET is studying the impact of dual-use technologies on society, with an eye to developing policy that incorporates legal frameworks, human rights standards and ethical considerations.

SPNET research supports the Department of National Defence and the Canadian Armed Forces

SPNET researchers are exploring:

  • how stakeholders from the private and defence sectors can connect to facilitate innovation
  • what are the instruments and mechanisms that can allow for increased combination and integration of capabilities to enable the connected battlespace
  • how champions of the public well-being and interested stakeholders can uphold, claim, and exercise their rights and responsibilities
  • How regulations can help champions uphold those rights without limiting innovation
