The OWSD Palestine National Chapter is a branch of the Organization for Women in Science in Developing Countries that based at the offices of the World Academy of Science (TWAS), in Trieste, Italy. It is a programme unit of UNESCO. The main aim of our chapter is to highlight the role of women in Science at the development of the Palestinian community. We aim at enhancing the research skills of the young graduate through training and networking with women researchers in Palestine, the region, and worldwide. We will be focusing on the professional development of our members through being enrolled in the different training that is presented by the OWSD.
The idea of the elements in the periodic table was quoted from the Nobel Laureate George Smith, Nobel Prize winner in chemistry, where he emphasized that freedom is a universal scientific fact where the elements in the periodic table with the symbols: P, Al, Es, Ti and Ne will bond together in a natural way to form the word “Palestine” that we the Palestinians carry in our genes no matter where we live.
We hope to realize our dream as Palestinian women in transferring our genes to future generations with science love.
