The $18 million National Intelligence and Security Discovery Research Grants (NISDRG) program is funded by Defence (through its National Security Science and Technology Centre), and the Office of National Intelligence. The program aims to support research that deepens the understanding of emerging science and technology and addresses intelligence, and national security threats.

Through the program, national intelligence and security organisations will engage with researchers to enable Australia's greatest minds to work together on current important intelligence and security challenges.
