Serbia increases activity within the NATO’s Science for Peace and Security Programme

The NATO Science for Peace and Security (SPS) Programme offers funding, expert advice and support to promote practical cooperation between NATO member states and partner nations based on scientific research, technological innovation and knowledge exchange. Serbia has become increasingly active within the SPS Programme and identified many areas for practical cooperation with NATO. Serbian Ministry of Education, Science and Technological Development is in charge of coordinating and implementing the SPS.

Serbia has benefited from several NATO SPS activities since it has joined that Programme in 2007, including projects on defense against chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear agents and counter-terrorism, and raising the profile of women in peace and security.

NATO SPS projects have contributed to many scientific areas in Serbia and the region and have, for instance, helped produce seismic charts for the Western Balkan countries, improve the protection of the Sava river water resources, and Serbian and German scientists, for example, are working on developing a decontamination and demining robot.

Currently ongoing projects also include cyber-defence, environmental safety and energy security. Since 2007, Serbia has included more than 35 Programme activities of the SPS Programme which are implemented in three different parts – multi-year projects, training, as well as advanced research workshops.
