TWAS-SISSA-Lincei Research Cooperation Visits Programme

TWAS-SISSA-Lincei Research Cooperation Visits Programme

Deadline: 10 August 2021
Open to: young scientists from Least Developed Countries who hold an MSc (or higher degree)
Benefits: travel expenses and subsistence costs


TWAS, in collaboration with the Lincei Academy and SISSA, offers young scientists from Least Developed Countries the opportunity to visit research laboratories at Centres of Excellence in Trieste, Italy. Research proposals must fall under the umbrella of sustainability science and thus be relevant to areas that support the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

The purpose of these exchange fellowships is two-fold:

  1. to enhance the research capacity of promising scientists, especially those at the beginning of their research career,
  2. to catalyze the formation of research links for further collaboration.


Eligible host institutions are the following:


The Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation and the Italian Agency for Development Cooperation, through TWAS, will cover travel expenses and provide subsistence costs for the stay in Italy. The administration and financial operation of TWAS is undertaken by UNESCO in accordance with an agreement signed by the two organizations.
