The NATO Chief Scientist, Dr Bryan Wells, has just launched the ‘NATO Chief Scientist Challenge’, calling for solutions in virus detection, improved situational awareness, decontamination, resilience and the post-COVID-19 future.
The Challenge was reportedly sent out to over 6000 scientists in NATO’s network.
“Proposals, from research articles to prototypes, are expected by the end of April. Working with NATO Allies, partners and staff, the Office of the Chief Scientist will help turn the best proposals into reality.
Finally, NATO say it is using the capabilities of its own laboratory, the Centre for Maritime Research and Experimentation in La Spezia, which conducts new research in big data analytics, modelling and simulation for decision-making.
