    Application Deadline: 1 October 2019

    The TWAS Sustainability Visiting Expert programme supports visits of internationally renowned scientists to institutions located in developing countries, especially those located in the Least Developed Countries (LDCs).

    The objective of the programme is to provide institutions and
    research groups in developing countries, especially those with limited
    outside contacts, with the opportunity to establish long-term links with
    world leaders in science and so help develop capacity-building in their
    country.

    1. Under the programme, prospective host institutions can invite
      internationally renowned experts in areas of science other than
      mathematics and physics to collaborate in research and training. The
      visiting expert will be expected to interact closely with faculty and
      students of the host institution with the aim of strengthening its
      existing activities and/or assisting in the establishment of new lines
      of research. The visiting expert could also deliver lectures and
      seminars to research students, supervise students, conduct research and
      discuss future collaborative partnerships.
    2. The visit should have a minimum stay of two weeks at the host
      institution. Applications to renew successful visits will be considered
      in the following year(s). TWAS will provide the Visiting Expert with the
      most direct economy class travel (round-trip) while the host
      institution is expected to cover local expenses.
    3. On completion of the visit, the visiting expert and the host
      institution should provide comprehensive reports outlining the impact
      the visit has had on the educational and research programmes of the host
      institution.

    As the programme is striving towards providing equal opportunities,
    nominations of women will be particularly welcomed. Only persons who
    have attained international recognition in their fields of science will
    be considered for support under this programme.
