In order to encourage and provide opportunities to individual scientific agencies, academic and research institutions, centres of excellence and industries in the developing countries for their participation in the scientific activities of the Centre, a ‘NAM S&T – Industry Network’ has been set up by the Centre. Such organisations may be from any developing country, whether it is a member country of the Centre or not. The Network membership entitles the member organisation to participate in all the scientific activities, including meetings, workshops, training and fellowship programmes organised by the Centre.

Any individual R&D / academic institution, scientific agency, science academy or industrial unit / association may become member of the NAM S&T – Industry Network.  Two  nominees  of  the  Network  members  are  provided  free  return  international  airfare  each  year,  if  the  event  is  held  abroad;  all  registration  charges,  training  fees  or processing  fees are waived off; and local hospitality, including  accommodation, meals and local transport is made available free of cost. For additional nominees in a particular year, however, the local hospitality is still fully taken care of by the Centre, but they are required to make own arrangement for the international travel. 

The Network members are also provided space in the quarterly Newsletter of the Centre  at  a  nominal  cost  to  advertise  their  achievements  /  products.  They  may  also  disseminate  any  information  through  the  extensive  network  of  the  Centre  in  ~100 countries  and  with  ~25  international  organizations  and  access  useful  information  on science  and  technology  in  the  developing  world  on  a  regular  basis.  Through  such interactions,  a  Network  member  may  get  the  opportunity  to  offer  consultancy  or undertake  joint  projects  on  transfer  of  technology,  technical  assistance,  manpower development and capacity building in specific areas on bilateral or multilateral basis with other member organizations or countries. The Network members also get preference in holding international scientific events in collaboration with the Centre.
