About TYAN :

TYAN was established during the TWAS's 27th General Meeting in Kigali, Rwanda,

« TYAN has been formed to reinforce ties among the Academy's Young Affiliates. Young scientists, in fact, represent a proactive group of scientific experts in the developing world and can provide timely feedback on needs that they might have in their daily life. By sharing their scientific expertise, skills and ideas, they can have an impact on developing countries through the organization of scientific workshops, networks and public meetings with policy makers, entrepreneurs, journalists and the public at large.

The TWAS Young Affiliate Programme was officially launched in 2007. Each year TWAS's five Regional Offices select up to five excellent scientists under the age of 40, in a time of their career when they bring valuable energy and perspective to the Academy. After five years, they become Alumni. »
