The Science for Peace and Security Programme

The Science for Peace and Security (SPS) Programme promotes dialogue and practical cooperation between NATO member states and partner nations based on scientific research, technological innovation and knowledge exchange. The SPS Programme offers funding, expert advice and support to tailor-made, security-relevant activities that respond to NATO’s strategic objectives.
 
Interested parties submit an application for funding that must be led by project directors from at least one NATO Ally and one partner country. Any application must also directly address at least one of the SPS key priorities and have a clear link to security. 

The SPS Programme supports collaboration through three established grant mechanisms: multi-year research projects, research workshops, and training courses. Interested applicants must develop a collaborative activity that fits within one of the following formats:

1. Multi-year research & development projects
2. Training courses            3. Advanced Research Workshop              

There are normally 2-3 peer review evaluation panels held each year, with deadlines for application submissions corresponding to their scheduling. Upcoming deadline is: 1 June 2019.
