The World Academy of Sciences (TWAS) – for the advancement of science in developing countries, is an international science academy, founded in 1983 in Trieste, Italy, under the leadership of the late Nobel laureate Abdus Salam of Pakistan. In 1991, the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) assumed responsibility for administering TWAS.
With the world’s largest South-South PhD and post-doctoral research fellowship programme, TWAS helps early-career researchers to gain education and experience at top global science institutions. TWAS currently has about 160 PhD fellowships with 8 partners in six countries, and about 100 postdoctoral fellowships with 9 partners in five countries.
