The AC/137(RG) chronological series contains the records of the Science Committee Advisory Panel on NATO Science Research Grants. This was one of three programmes of the Office of the Science Adviser to be funded by NATO in 1959. The grants had to be awarded to international research programmes. The panel was made up of five scholars, to form a group qualified to decide how such grants should be awarded (see AC/137-R/5). Initially stored under the reference AC/137(RG), the documents relating to this panel were incorporated into the Science Committee’s chronological document series as of 1961.
