The series consists of five webinars taking place online between 10 June and 29 October 2021, leading to TWAS Fifteenth General Conference, which will be also held online from 1 to 4 November 2021. The webinars feature the winners of the 2020 TWAS awards and of the 2020 awards in honour of TWAS Fellows, thus the name of the series carries "2020" in its title.

This First Awards Webinar Series is an opportunity for TWAS award winners to deliver brief presentations showcasing their scientific accomplishments. A question-and-answer session takes place after each presentation, allowing participants to ask TWAS award winners their questions.
