The Academy of Sciences for the Developing World (TWAS) is seeking nominations for the Trieste Science Prize, which is aimed at honouring scientists living and working in the developing countries. The Trieste Science Prize, sponsored by Trieste-based Illycaffè, was established to give international recognition and visibility to outstanding scientific achievements made by scientists from the developing countries. Each year it is given in two different fields.

For 2007, the fields are chemical and agricultural science. Each prize carries a monetary award of US$50,000 and a trophy. For more information take a look at or contact
