The long-standing partnership between NATO and Ukraine includes strong scientific cooperation in a variety of domains, such as counter-terrorism, advanced technologies, cyber defence, energy security, and defence against chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear agents. Tailored cooperation and dialogue with Ukraine is deepening, thanks to the country’s new status as an Enhanced Opportunities Partner, since June 2020, in recognition of its contributions to Euro-Atlantic security.


The NATO Science for Peace and Security (SPS) Programme provides the Ukrainian scientific community with a platform to work side-by-side with NATO Allies and partner countries on security-related issues.

Ukraine is currently leading 27 ongoing activities, one of which is a key flagship project in the field of counter-terrorism called DEXTER (Detection of Explosives and Firearms to Counter Terrorism). It aims to develop an integrated system to detect explosives and firearms in public places, remotely and in real time, without disrupting the flow of passengers.

“This project will contribute to NATO’s enhanced role in the international fight against terrorism,” said Dr Deniz Yüksel-Beten, senior SPS and partnerships cooperation advisor at NATO.

The SPS Programme also opens doors for Ukrainian experts – especially young scientists and researchers – to pursue innovative solutions to security challenges, in cooperation with other specialists from Allied and partner countries.

In particular, in the field of security-related advanced technology, Ukrainian experts have collaborated with peers from the United Kingdom and the United States to increase the robustness of ground and air vehicles, as well as their performance, operational agility in severe terrain and resilience to failures.

“We see SPS as a valuable platform for Ukraine-NATO practical engagement,” said Deputy Prime Minister Olha Stefanishyna during her visit to NATO Headquarters on 8 July 2020. “It facilitates effective scientific research, technological innovation and knowledge-sharing between NATO and Ukrainian scientists.”
