ISTIC and TWAS launch search for best S&T innovations in the South

      

 

TWAS and the International Science, Technology and Innovation Centre for South-South Cooperation (ISTIC) are collaborating on a project aimed at identifying, rewarding and disseminating best practices in the innovative use of science and technology in the development of new products, processes or services that have had impacts on economic development in the South.

During the initial phase of the project, scientists, entrepreneurs and others are invited to submit abstracts of their experience (using Document A) by 1 April 2015. Authors of the best 10-15 case studies, as judged by a panel of experts, will be invited to present full-length reports at a workshop in Malaysia scheduled for 10 - 11 October 2015.

During the workshop, the best three presentations will be rewarded with cash prizes of USD5,000, USD3,000 and USD2,000, respectively. The case studies of all 10-15 finalists will also be published by ISTIC and TWAS and made freely available throughout the South.
