Communications Plan

The Centre for Security Science was created in 2006 to manage two independent science and technology development programs—the Public Security Technical Program (PSTP) and the Chemical, Biological, Radiological-Nuclear (CBRN) Research and Technology Initiative (CRTI). NIVA provided the Centre with expert assistance in producing a strategy for developing a unique market position along with a plan for promoting its programs both nationally and internationally.

Centre for Security Science

NIVA developed the Centre’s website, which includes two sub-sites for funded programs. The project involved researching and writing top-level pages, and substantively editing the content from the foundational sites. The new site, which is compliant with Common Look and Feel 2.0 standards, promotes the benefits of the Centre as a facilitator of science and technology research.

The report includes summaries of activities in four program areas, and the results from a user survey that we implemented and analyzed. We also developed a series of success stories for the reports, describing global information systems applications in the areas of public safety and security, public health, environmental and sustainable development, and matters of importance to Aboriginal people.
