NATO Programme for Security Through Science

NATOThe Security Through Science Programme offers grants to scientists in NATO, Partner and Mediterranean Dialogue countries to collaborate on priority research topics.

Grants are also offered to assist the academic community in Partner countries to set up basic computer networking infrastructure.

The aim of the Security Through Science Programme is to contribute to security, stability and solidarity among nations, by applying science to problem solving. Collaboration, networking and capacity-building are means used to accomplish this end. A further aim is to catalyse democratic reform and support economic development in NATO's Partner countries in transition.

Civil science has proved to be a highly effective vehicle for international dialogue, due to its universality and its ability to create new international networks. The talent garnered in these scientific networks can be applied to the emerging threats to the Alliance. Science is both a means of finding answers to critical questions and a way of connecting nations.

How the Programme works
Applications for support on topics in the priority areas listed below are prepared jointly by working scientists in eligible countries of the Euro Atlantic Partnership Council (EAPC) and countries of the Mediterranean Dialogue. The collaboration must be between scientists in NATO countries on the one hand, and scientists in eligible Partner countries or Mediterranean Dialogue countries on the other. There is a specific application form for each support mechanism; the application forms may be found at the programme web site. The completed applications are submitted to NATO Headquarters, where they undergo international peer review. Applications may be submitted at any time, although upcoming deadlines for submission of applications have been set as follows:

  • 1 March
  • 1 July
  • 1 November
