Purpose:                                   The Office of the Public Affairs Advisor (PAA) at the U.S. Mission to NATO (USNATO) announces an open competition for not-for-profit, non-government organizations and think-tanks that focus on international affairs, defense and security issues, and U.S. and European relations to submit project proposals.  We encourage project proposals to include public, on-the-record discussions and creative public engagements in Europe and Canada on the major theme of: “The Next 70 Years: What should NATO look like in 2089.”

Successful proposals will emphasize the ability to deliver clear messages to selected audiences.

These proposals should include a narrative about the importance of the NATO Alliance and its mission to Allied audiences including the general public, women, youth and future leaders, the security and defense community, policy makers, and opinion shapers in European countries. We hope to stimulate new ideas and to encourage public dialogue on the priorities for NATO in the upcoming years. Finally, all institutions submitting proposals should explain how the activities proposed will be measured and evaluated to determine the effectiveness of the proposal’s content.
