TWAS and 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.

The TWAS-International Science, Technology and Innovation Centre for
South-South Cooperation (ISTIC) project is divided into three phases:


1. PHASE 1: Scientists, entrepreneurs and others are invited to submit
abstracts of their experience by completing Document A and mailing it to
exchanges at twas.org by Tuesday 15 May 2012.


2. PHASE 2: Authors of the best 10-15 case studies, as judged by a panel of
experts, will be invited to present full-length reports (based on the
guidelines in Document B) at a workshop in Penang, Malaysia scheduled for
15-19 October 2012. The workshop will be followed by a ISTIC-TWAS
competition on "Successful Innovation in Science and Technology in
Developing Countries" (20-21 October 2012): the best three presentations
given at the workshop will be rewarded with cash prizes of USD 5,000, USD
3,000 and USD 2,000, respectively.


3. PHASE 3: TWAS and ISTIC will edit the case studies of the 10-15
finalists for publication and make them freely available throughout the
South.
