The Science and Technology Organization (STO) is a NATO subsidiary body having the same legal status than the NATO itself, and created within the
framework of the North Atlantic Treaty signed in Washington in 1949. It has been established with a view to
meeting to the best advantage the collective needs of NATO, NATO Nations and partner Nations in the fields
of Science and Technology.
The STO is operated under the authority of the North Atlantic Council which has delegated the operations of
the STO to a Board of Directors (the S&T Board – STB) comprising the NATO Nations S&T managers.
The STB is chaired by the NATO Chief Scientist who is a high level recognized S&T leader of a NATO Nation,
being permanently assigned to the NATO headquarters in Brussels and also serving as the senior scientific
advisor to the NATO leadership.
