The University of Waterloo’s Cybersecurity and Privacy Institute (CPI) is tackling challenges by building on Waterloo’s expertise in computer science, engineering, mathematics, cryptography and quantum computing. The impact of this research is already being felt around the globe. CPI’s vision is to be internationally recognized as a leading interdisciplinary research institute making significant impact in improving information security and human privacy.
The Laurier Centre for Sustainable Food Systems (CSFS) uses food as a local sustainability lens to address interconnected environmental, social, and economic challenges connected to global food. CSFS’ vision is to work with practitioners and academics to conduct research that is both grounded in practice and theoretically informed, and to disseminate this co-generated knowledge through local, national, and global networks to promote more sustainable food systems.
The Canadian Network for Research on Terrorism, Security, and Society is a partnership of multiple universities, government agencies, and international research centres. We foster policy-relevant research and evidence-based policy on terrorism, countering violent extremism, and the impact of both on society, create opportunities for dialogue between researchers and security officials, and support the development of a new generation of scholars interested in these areas of study.
