The 27th TWAS General Meeting will be held 14-17 November at the Kigali Convention Centre, in the Rwandan capital of Kigali, with the theme of "Innovation for Sustainability". Rwanda is globally recognized for its ambitious efforts to drive economic development and human prosperity through science, education and technology, and it has emerged as an African leader in science policy.

The meeting will feature the traditional ministerial session, with high-level government and policy representatives offering detailed views of the challenges and opportunities requiring science in the developing world. Symposia will focus on science related to epidemics; insights into the universe; and science and technology in Rwanda. The annual TWAS-Lenovo Prize and other high-level awards will be announced, and new TWAS Fellows and Young Affiliates will be selected.

This will be the first TWAS General Meeting held in Rwanda. The Rwandan Ministry of Education will serve as the principal host.

Attendance at the November event is by invitation only.
