North Atlantic Treaty Organization
Grants for scientific collaboration to promote international peace and security, including in security concerns related to environment and energy
Principal Office: International
The North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) is an alliance of North America with Western Europe to fulfill the goals of the North Atlantic Treaty signed in 1949. The role of NATO is to protect the freedom and security of its member countries by political and military means.
Through different organizational structures, NATO member countries coordinate with partner countries — including many countries in the developing world.
Grant Programs for Agriculture, Energy, Environment, Natural Resources
Science for Peace and Security (SPS). NATO provides grants for projects that promote international cooperation in civil science and innovation through its Science for Peace and Security (SPS) program.
Among other priorities, the SPS funds activities for energy security and environmental security.
Grants through SPS are for multi-year projects, technical workshops, and training courses. Grant size varies with the type of funding.
For each type of grant, the website provides guidelines for applicants and an application form. The guidelines discuss grant purpose, eligibility, allowable expenditures, reporting requirements, and how and where to submit applications.
Applications are reviewed several times a year, following the published application deadlines.
(Note: At the time of this profile review, SPS was in the process of adopting a new application system. Currently, SPS is only accepting proposals in response to Special Calls.)
