Scientists and other experts from NATO and Hungary discussed future projects of cooperation at the NATO Science for Peace and Security (SPS) Programme Information Day held in Budapest on 11 October 2018.
Hungary is currently leading an SPS project in the area of chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear (CBRN) defence. The multi-year initiative aims to develop a cutting-edge sensor to detect bio-toxins, including in water and food. A number of young scientists, including from Ukraine, are contributing to the research effort, also helping them to kick-start their career.
The country also helped build capacity in NATO partner countries Iraq and Jordan in countering improvised explosive devices through the provision of training and equipment to their armed forces.
