The International Science and Technology Center (ISTC) is a non-proliferation programme that provides weapons scientists from Russia and the Commonwealth of Independent States new opportunities in international partnership.

The Science and Technology Center in Ukraine is an intergovernmental organization created with the goal of aiding unemployed or underemployed scientists previously working on the development of weapons of mass destruction. It finances projects which convert the military know-how of the scientists of our recipient states into peaceful civilian applications.
