Basic Sciences and Engineering Division

The Basic Sciences and Engineering Division is a multidisciplinary programme that facilitates UNESCO’s work in reinforcing intergovernmental cooperation and co-operation between partner organizations in science to strengthen national capacities in the basic sciences and science education.

It focuses on fostering major actions that involve a network of national, regional and international centers of excellence or benchmark centers in the basic sciences.
In addition, it also supports the UNESCO Engineering Initiative which was created to promote engineering education at the secondary and tertiary levels and to highlight the roles and accomplishments of women and youth in the engineering field.

It also emphasizes the importance of renewable and alternative energies for sustainable engineering practices by showcasing how youth are taking on contemporary engineering challenges and how professional engineers are shattering gender-based stereotypes.
