Mision / Vision

The UNITWIN/UNESCO Chairs Programme was conceived as a way to advance research, training and programme development in all of UNESCO’s fields of competence by building university networks and encouraging inter-university cooperation through the transfer of knowledge across borders. Since it was established in 1992, the programme has aroused great interest among Member States.

The UNITWIN programme aims to be pertinent, forward-thinking and to impact socio-economic development effectively.
