The $18 million grants are designed to foster innovation and assist in developing national security and intelligence capacity within Australian universities, deepening the understanding of emerging science and technology, and addressing emerging security threats.

As part of the new program, national intelligence and security organisations will be encouraged to collaborate with researchers in a bid to align research objectives with priorities identified by the Australian government in relation to the Intelligence Challenges and National Security Challenges.

The NISDRG program is expected to fund around 12 research grants worth between $400,000 and $600,000 per grant, for a period of up to three years.

Grant applications will be managed by the Australian Research Council (ARC) on behalf of the Office of National Intelligence and the NSSTC.
