Within the framework of the UNESCO-Islamic Development Bank (IsDB) project on the Strengthening Inclusive STI system in Uzbekistan, UNESCO, with support of the Islamic Development Bank (IsDB), cooperates and provides technical assistance to the Government of Uzbekistan, in reviewing and strengthening the national STI system. One of the main objectives of the project is to raise national awareness concerning the central role of STI in achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

As a follow-up to this work, a one day National Workshop on STI Policy is planned to be held on 18 February 2020, followed by a half day working session with a national team designated to follow-up on the project activities.
