Research Professors in LDCs, Associateship programmes are now accepting candidates and proposals

TWAS announced two open calls for scientific exchange programmes today, both designed to facilitate collaboration between scientists in developing countries.

  • The TWAS-UNESCO Associateship Scheme is a collaboration between the Academy, UNESCO, and almost 300 centres of excellence in the South. Associates are appointed for three years and can make two months-long visits to the centre during that time to engage in research collaboration.
  • TWAS Research Professors in LDCs is open to research groups and scientific institutions in Least Developed Countries (LDCs) that would like to work with a TWAS Fellow, TWAS Young Affiliate, or TWAS Alumni. The TWAS scientist will be offered appointments as TWAS Research Professors for one year, during which they will visit their host institution for a period of two to four weeks.
