TWAS-SISSA-Lincei Research Program 2021

TWAS-SISSA-Lincei research program

TWAS-SISSA-Lincei research program is open for applications. Young scientists from underdeveloped countries holding an MSc degree can visit research laboratories at centres of excellence in Trieste. This research program is for the duration of three months in the different fields that fall under the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. This program aims to enhance the research capacity of scientists, significantly of the ones who are at the beginning of their career and catalyse the formation of research links for further collaboration.

The only condition is that candidates should return to their countries after the completion and they cannot take any other assignments during their period of the TEAS-SISSA-Lincei research program. It is a golden opportunity for students from the least developed countries to carry out research in Italy. If you are a young researcher passionate to pursue research in sustainable development goals, do not miss this opportunity and apply before the deadline ends.
