Overview of fixed-term collaborative projects.
TWAS is one of seven partners in the CATALYST consortium, a European project on 'Capacity Development for Hazard Risk Reduction and Adaptation'
14 October 2011. TWAS, the Royal Society (UK) and the Environment Defense Fund (USA) are co-convening a project to open up the debate on how research into solar radiation management – a potential but controversial tool to reduce the effects of global warming – could be regulated.
As a member of the European Union-funded EuroAfrica-ICT.org consortium, TWAS was involved in organizing a series of meetings, including two major conferences, the 3rd and 4th Euro-Africa Cooperation Forums on ICT Research.
Together with ICGEB and UNESCO/IBSP, TWAS has launched a new funding opportunity through the implementation of the "Joint Project on Capacity Building in Basic Molecular Biology" that aims at creating a network of laboratories involved in research on plant and animal pathogens affecting agricultural productivity in developing regions.
TWAS and Forgea International collaborate in the organization of training courses on various aspects of environment-related issues.
