Automated system for management of partner programmes
The automated system, known as PRIME -Partnership Real-time Information, Management and Exchange- allows users from NATO HQ and member countries to plan and manage the Partnership Work Programme (PWP) and the Individual Partnership Programmes (IPPs) over a secure internet connection in real time.
PRIME was developed over a period of 8 months by a Swiss-Bulgarian team
led by the Zurich-based International Relations and Security Network (ISN),
in co-ordination with civilian and military staff at NATO HQ. Switzerland,
which is a NATO partner, is strongly oriented toward the development of
modern information technology.
