some 70 countries. Its principal aim is to promote scientific      capacity and excellence for sustainable development in the South (see North-South divide). Its headquarters is located on the premises of the Abdus Salam International Centre for Theoretical Physics (ICTP) in Trieste, Italy.

TWAS was founded in 1983 under the leadership of the Nobel LaureateAbdus Salam of Pakistan by a group of distinguished scientists who were determined to do something about the dismal state of scientific research in developing countries.

The founding members of TWAS therefore decided to set up an organization that would help to:

  1. Recognize, support and promote excellence in scientific research in the South;
  2. Provide promising scientists in the South with research facilities necessary for the advancement of their work;
  3. Facilitate contacts between individual scientists and institutions in the South;
  4. Encourage South-North cooperation between individuals and centres of scholarship;
  5. Promote scientific research on major developing countries problems.

The National Institute of Genetic Engineering and Biotechnology has been received 5 applicants for short-term research fellowship from member states including:

-          Tunisia

-          Sudan

-          Tanzania

-          Cameron
