This year marks the silver anniversary of TWAS, the academy of sciences for the developing world. Over the past 25 years, the Academy has emerged as a leading institution in international science and as a respected voice for science in the South.
We live in an era that places a premium on both global knowledge and global competition. Together, these issues make the role of science and technology more critical than ever. TWAS is addressing the challenges posed by the increasingly seamless interface between science, technology and innovation in a number of ways.
