are honored to invite you to attend the launch event of 
the National Chapter of the Organization for Women in Science for Developing Countries (OWSD) in Palestine 


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 a Palestinian Chapter for the OWSD? 

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

Your attendance is a great support for research in Palestine and for Palestinian women researchers.
