2023 Call for Ideas and Suggestions on ANSO Training
The Alliance of International Science Organizations (ANSO) was established in November 2018 with the coordination of the Chinese Academy of Sciences and the support of 36 other national academies, research institutions, universities, and international organizations from around the world. ANSO catalyzes and supports Collaborative Research projects in Science, Technology, Innovation, and Capacity Building (STIC) to address major global sustainable challenges and help advance the UN SDGs under the principles of extensive consultation, joint contribution and shared benefits.
The ANSO training program is aligned to the needs of the regional and local science and technology advancement, especially basic and applied sciences to support green and sustainable development. ANSO training program, at the current stage, gives high emphasis on collaboration, networking and capacity building around common S&T challenges and concerns. Featured training will prioritize the common needs of ANSO members. Your ideas and suggestions will be of great importance to all members.
Here is the guideline for ANSO call for training projects in 2023, by which, we intend to seek good ideas, suggestions and proposals from our member institutions and partners that are easily operated and implemented.
