the People’s Republic of China to conduct research, to facilitate technology
transfer and to promote international cooperation. The Chinese Government with
UNESCO’s support established CISTRAT in 2012 as a Category II Centre under the
auspices of UNESCO. The Centre is based in Chinese Academy of Science and
Technology for Development (CASTED) which is one of the most significant think
tanks in China that supports S&T policy-making. CISTRAT leverages the
research capacity and cooperation network of CASTED to provide training for
S&T policy officials, researchers, teachers, etc., in developing countries.
By now, nearly 100 international trainees have benefited from our trainings.
