Abstract

As reported in previous chapters, the “Advanced Research Workshop on Explosives Detection” (the Workshop) represented an important gathering of scientists, engineers, policy-makers, and administrators working within the framework of the NATO Science for Peace and Security (SPS) Programme. The three pillars of SPS are Science, Partnership, and Security, and this workshop thoroughly embodied all three in ways that will be discussed in this chapter. However, participants also identified avenues to strengthen these pillars – especially in Partnership – and we reserve discussion of this pillar for last.
