Lockheed Martin Cybersecurity Research Fund

Student sits at computer open to the CIC landing page.

As part of its Industrial and Regional Benefits (IRB) commitments to the Government of Canada, Lockheed Martin Aero has provided funds to assist the University of New Brunswick’s (UNB’s) advancement of cybersecurity applied research.  The monies are being used to establish a fund to support cybersecurity, specifically the Lockheed Martin Cybersecurity Research Fund (LMCRF).  Through the LMCRF, UNB will further research in cybersecurity across any discipline.  This program is being managed under the auspices of the Canadian Institute for Cybersecurity (CIC). The LMCRF will be used for technology enhancement within the various domains of cybersecurity. The primary focus for the LMCRF program funds will be projects carried out within the CIC, particularly those that align with clearly identified end-user requirements, both in industrial and public areas of application. It will also enable UNB professors to initiate and sustain multi-disciplinary projects that range from fundamental to applied research in a diverse span of disciplines.

The LMCRF competition will be held twice a year.
