Request a Grant Writer

Grants to USA, Canada, and International scientists and experts in eligible countries for collaborative science and research projects that address security across a range of sectors. Funding is intended to support research related to the detection of explosives and advanced technologies. The purpose of the program is to develop and implement practical cooperation, and enhance dialogue between NATO and partner nations through security-related science, technology, and innovation.

This program supports collaboration through three established grant mechanisms: Multi-Year research and development Projects (MYP), Advanced Research Workshops (ARW), and training courses (Advanced Study Institutes-ASI, and Advanced Training Courses - ATC). Interested applicants should develop proposals for activities that fit within one of these formats.

SPS is currently accepting proposals in response to two Special Calls for Proposals on Advanced Technologies and Explosives Detection. 

  • To address the challenges and opportunities raised by innovative and disruptive technologies,the SPS program is launching a “Special Call for Proposals on Security-Related Advanced Technologies” to enhance the SPS portfolio in a number of areas.
  • Additionally, the SPS program has issued a call Call for Proposals to address human, scientific and technological advancements in the field of Mine and Unexploded Ordnance Detection and Clearance. One of the objectives is to encourage applications that bring long-term impact, and have a thematic and geographical strategic perspective. To this end, applications that promote long-term research in hard sciences, as well as in social disciplines (such as political science, anthropology, sociology, psychology, etc.) are encouraged. Social sciences applications may be in the form of long-term studies, case studies with practical applications (i.e. sharing best practices, developing recommendations, identifying gaps), and field studies, etc. Applicants should consider their project’s relevance to NATO’s key tasks of collective defense, crisis management, and cooperative security.
