3 NATO’ s Third Dimension

4 North Atlantic Treaty Article 2:
“The Parties will contribute toward the further development of their free institutions, by bringing about a better understanding of the principles upon which these institutions are founded, and by promoting conditions of stability and well-being. They will seek to eliminate conflict in their international economic policies and will encourage economic collaboration between any or all of them.”

5 A network for cooperation
NATO Countries ( =26) Partner Countries: Albania, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Croatia, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyz Republic, Macedonia, Moldova, Russia, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Ukraine, Uzbekistan Mediterranean Dialogue Countries Algeria, Egypt, Israel, Jordan, Mauritania, Morocco, Tunisia Other Partners Austria, Finland, Ireland, Sweden, Switzerland

6 Security Through Science Programme
The fundamental re-orientation of the NATO Science Programme

7 Security Through Science Programme
Be in line with new challenges and missions of the Alliance Have concrete impact on social and economic system of Partner countries

8 Security Through Science Programme
Address younger generation Seek synergy and collaboration with other international organizations Make its achievements known

9 In practical terms: The Security through Science Programme is:
I. NATO Priorities Scientific Collaboration for Defence Against Terrorism Scientific Collaboration to Counter Other Threats to Security II. Partner Country Priorities Technology Transfer to Address Partner Country Priorities

10 NATO Priorities (1) Scientific Collaboration for Defence Against Terrorism Rapid Detection and Diagnosis of Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear (CBRN Agents and Weapons Novel and rapid methods of detection (e.g. chemical and biosensors, multisensor processing, gene chips Physical Protection against CBRN agents Decontamination of CBRN Agents Destruction of CBRN agents and weapons Medical Countermeasures (e.g. Chemical and vaccine technologies) Eco-Terrorism Countermeasures Computer Terrorism Countermeasures

11 NATO Priorities (2) Scientific Collaboration to Counter Other Threats to Security Environmental Security (e.g. desertification, land erosion, pollution, etc) Water Resources Management Management of Non-Renewable Resources Modeling Sustainable Consumption (e.g. food, energy, materials, fiscal measures and environmental costings) Disaster Forecast and Prevention Food Security Information Security Human and Societal Dynamics (e.g. global security, economic impact of terrorist actions, risk studies, topics in science policy.

12 Partner Country Priorities
NATO and Partner countries will agree on key priorities in 2004 Priority will be given to proposals which are both NATO and Partner priority
