Administrative history

On 24 April 1957, the Council approved the report of the Task Force on Further Action in the Field of Scientific and Technical Cooperation in its "first version" (AC/123) (see C-R(57)25) and thereby the creation of AC/132 in place of AC/123. Under its terms of reference (C-M(57)50), AC/132 was required to prepare a conference of experts on actions to be taken to develop the following in the NATO nations: -a highly-qualified scientific and technical workforce-applied research (see AC/132-R/1)For NATO and the western camp, the objective was to gain the advantage over the Soviet Union in terms of defence, economics and cultural life. AC/132 was composed of: -Dr J.B. Koepfli (Chairman) and a special assistant -one or two representatives for Belgium, Canada, France, Germany, Italy and the United Kingdom -the SHAPE Scientific Advisor The invited representatives were required to keep informed those countries which were not involved in the work. AC/132 validated a list of actions to be taken by NATO (proposed by the Chairman's assistant) (see AC/132-R/2): -create an international documentation centre-create NATO institutes specializing in research and development-develop exchange programmes between NATO nation scientists-create a science committee -create a post of Science Advisor to the Secretary General. The idea of a conference of experts was put on hold. The work of AC/132 then came to an end.
