On Wednesday 14 June, Norwegian scientists and experts, together with their colleagues from NATO partner countries, discussed the strengthening of cooperation under the Science for Peace and Security (SPS) program. Negotiations took place as a part of the SPS information day organized in cooperation with Norway, which has been strengthening its defense cooperation with the alliance lately by allowing the deployment of U.S. Marines and building a radar which will be part of NATO's anti-missile defense. 

The Information Day provided an opportunity for the expansion of scientific and research capacities, especially in the field of defense. Participants have thus exchanged their experience mainly in research of chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear defense (CBRN) and advanced technologies, such as unmanned aircraft vehicles (UAVs) and cyber threats. Following the strengthening of armed forces and military modernization, NATO now also focuses on enhancing scientific and research capacities. One of the SPS programs cooperates with Ukraine on the development of 3D mine detection, which is yet another way of mutual cooperation and support for Kyiv. The conflict-affected country recently also received support from the Czech Republic, which has resumed arms exports to the Ukraine.
