Under the Umbrella and Patronage of PALAST Academy, a National Chapter of the OWSD will be launched in Palestine at International Women's Day


Call for Membership: OWSD National Chapter in Palestine for Women Researchers 

Under the Umbrella and Patronage of Palestine Academy for Science and Technology (PALAST), a National Chapter of the  OWSD  will  be launched in Palestine. 

What is OWSD?

The Organization for Women in Science for the Developing World (OWSD) is an international organization founded in 1987 and based at the offices of the World Academy of Science (TWAS), in Trieste, Italy.  It is one of  the UNESCO programs and aims to increase  the  participation  of  women  in  developing  countries  in  scientific  and technological research, teaching and leadership. 

Why establish a Palestinian OWSD National Chapter?

  • To provide networking and information-sharing between institutions and individuals for promoting the increased participation of women in science and technology.
  • To initiate science-based activities that address national concerns working with all levels of society (grassroots, schools and universities).
  • To evolve and develop strategies for mobilizing financial and human resources towards achieving OWSD's objectives.

To launch our Palestinian chapter, hopefully on International Women's Day, we need at minimum 25 women researchers to enroll in the OWSD mother organization: click here to register
