Description

TWAS, also known as The World Academy of Sciences, is a prestigious organization dedicated to advancing science in developing countries. Founded in 1983 by a distinguished group of scientists, including Nobel laureate Abdus Salam, TWAS believes that by strengthening science and engineering, developing nations can tackle crucial challenges such as poverty, disease, and hunger. Based in Trieste, Italy, TWAS has over 1,200 elected fellows from more than 100 countries, 11 of whom are Nobel laureates.
