The IsDB- TWAS grants for research collaboration in sustainability sciences programme is fully funded by IsDB, aiming to promote and support research on key challenges related to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Grant provided will enable the collaboration groups to purchase the research equipment and strengthen the facilities they need to enhance their partnership and productivity and to support the mobility of young scientists between the participating institutions for training purposes.

The Programme in sustainability sciences will be awarded those projects, which demonstrate the best potential for transformative research and most likely to yield a concrete impact on society.
