2012 • 2 years • International Peace & Security
The Centre for Science and Security Studies is the focal point for nuclear security research, training, and education at King’s College, London. This project, "Trends in Illicit Iranian Procurement," will collect, organize, analyze and disseminate data on illicit attempts by Iran to procure nuclear-, missile- and military-related technologies and materials from private firms. This research will help shape policy, enforce sanctions, and educate companies on identifying illicit procurement attempts. Funds will be used for researcher salaries, travel, and administrative expenses. The project fits the Foundation’s goal to support innovative research projects on security challenges presented by states such as Iran.
