1958 - 2018: The Science for Peace and Security Programme celebrates its 60th anniversary

2018 marks the 60th anniversary of the NATO Science for Peace and Security (SPS) Programme, the foundations of which were laid on 13 December 1956, when the North Atlantic Council endorsed a report to enhance non-military cooperation and coordination within NATO in line with Articles 2 and 4 of the North Atlantic Treaty. Known as the Report of the Three Wise Men, it proposed concrete activities to enhance cooperation in the areas of politics, economics and science. The final Report of three NATO Ministers, i.e. Lester B. Pearson (Foreign Minister of Canada), Gaetano Martino (Foreign Minister of Italy), and Halvard Lange (Foreign Minister of Norway), included a dedicated subchapter on scientific and technological cooperation.

SPS - Still Pretty Smart @ 60: NATO’s Science for Peace and Security Programme celebrates its 60th Anniversary

Exactly 60 years ago, on 29 March 1958, the North Atlantic Council met in Paris where the then 15 NATO Ambassadors formally announced the establishment of a NATO Science Committee and the position of a Science Advisor to the Secretary General. Professor Norman F. Ramsey, a renowned US physicist from Harvard University who had once worked on the Manhattan Project, was appointed Science Advisor and chaired the first meeting of the NATO Science Committee, marking the foundation of the NATO Science Programme. Against the background of the launch of Sputnik1 by the Soviet Union, one of the Programme’s major goals was to promote the training of scientists within NATO countries to facilitate exchanges, build networks, and increase returns on research investments.
