CATALINK

The German Federal Foreign Office Commits Support to the Institute for Security and Technology’s CATALINK Initiative

July 29, 2022 – The German Federal Foreign Office has generously provided a new grant in support for the Institute for Security and Technology’s CATALINK initiative. This funding will allow the organization to expand its work designing solutions to enhance the security of the global commons. 

CATALINK is a global collaborative effort between civil society, including top technical experts, and government officials to build an internationally driven, secure, reliable, resilient, and multilateral nuclear crisis communications system. It is a proactively open process, and its success requires active engagement with partners all around the world. 

IST forges crucial connections across industry, advocacy, and government to solve emerging security risks before they make real-world impact. Our funders, including the German Federal Foreign Office, enable IST to continue developing tools and insights for companies, organizations, and governments to outpace emerging global security threats.

“Significant leadership and support from states both with and without nuclear weapons is essential to creating effective and novel global nuclear crisis communications pathways. We are grateful for the German Federal Foreign Office’s financial and political support to our CATALINK efforts, the success of which requires active engagement with partners all around the world. IST is immensely grateful to our German partners and are excited to continue expanding this collaborative international effort.” said Philip Reiner, Chief Executive Officer at IST.
