The World Academy for Sciences (TWAS)

The World Academy of Sciences for the advancement of science in developing countries (TWAS) is the most important global academy for science. It is based in Trieste and counts more than 1100 members, among which 15 Nobel Prize laureates.

TWAS was founded 1983 by Abdus Salam, Nobel laureate for physics in 1979, on the belief that by building strength in science and engineering, developing nations could build the knowledge and skill to address such challenges as hunger, disease and poverty.
