Regional partners
Five Regional Partners keep TWAS close to grassroots science in the developing world

The Academy’s partners in five major regions perform vital functions: They provide information to scientists throughout the developing world. They nominate scientists for membership and awards, select Young Affiliates, and organize conferences. In the process, they raise awareness of TWAS and its programmes among scientists in each region.
