NAM S&T Centre is one of ISTIC’s strategic partners through an Agreement that was signed in 2016 which enables collaborative programmes to be organised between the two organisations. The first of such programmes was the International Training Programme on STI Policy and Management for Developing Countries which was held from 8-12 August 2016. Prof. Dr. Arun P. Kulshreshtha, the NAM S&T Director-General is a member of ISTIC STI Advisory Council.
