At the NPWG, we collaborate with leading agencies in the field. Here are some of our ongoing and past projects and partners:
To encourage the development of current and future national security professionals, the NPWG is a member of the U.S. Strategic Command Deterrence and Assurance Academic Alliance.
Through sponsorship from the Carnegie Corporation of New York, the NPWG collaborates with the Project on Nuclear Gaming to study nuclear deterrence using next-generation wargames.
Through support from the National Nuclear Security Administration’s Office of Defense Nuclear Nonproliferation, the NPWG engages with the Nuclear Science and Security Consortium to train the next generation of nuclear security experts.
The Center for Strategic and International Studies’ Project on Nuclear Issues partnered with the NPWG on a two-year project—On The Radar—sponsored by the Carnegie Corporation to examine how emerging technologies can affect the situational awareness of decision-makers during crises between nuclear-armed states.
