NATO works with international networks of scientists and researchers from Allied and partner countries. Their research includes both security-related civil science projects and defence innovation projects to develop long-term capabilities. NATO supports these scientists by providing grant funding; creating channels that allow scientists to share and receive expert advice; and organising tailor-made activities that enhance practical cooperation on security-related science.
From stratospheric balloons to fast-healing bandages, NATO scientists are working on new technologies every day that make us safer and more secure. Watch the videos below to learn more about NATO science!
