UNESCO Chairs & UNITWIN Network
UNESCO Chairs & UNITWIN Networks:
United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) is known as the “intellectual” agency of the United Nations, created in 1945, after two World Wars, with a firm belief that peace can be established only through humanity’s moral and intellectual solidarity.
UNESCO strives to build network amongst nations by mobilizing for quality education access, intercultural understanding, scientific cooperation and protection of human dignity.
Launched in 1992, the UNITWIN/UNESCO Chairs Programme promotes international inter-university cooperation and networking to enhance institutional capacities through knowledge sharing and collaborative work. The Programme supports the establishment of UNESCO Chairs and UNITWIN Networks related to UNESCO’s key priority areas – education, the natural and social sciences, culture and communication. Through this network, higher education and research institutions all over the globe pool their resources, both human and material, to address pressing challenges and contribute to the development of their societies.
