Regional offices
Five Regional Offices keep TWAS close to grassroots science in the developing world

The Academy’s offices in five major regions perform vital functions: They provide information to scientists throughout the developing world. They nominate scientists for membership and prizes, select Young Affiliates, and organize conferences. In the process, they raise awareness of TWAS and its programmes among scientists in each region.
