ISWI Newsletter - Vol.4 No.9
02 February 2012

Dear ISWI Participant:

At last year's "UN/Nigeria Workshop on ISWI" (Abuja, Nigeria) a topic that repeatedly came up was the status of the "Regional Centres for Space Science and Technology Education (Affiliated to the United Nations)". All are up and running. For more information on these regional centres, please visit It is important to bear in mind that ISWI is both a research initiative and education initiative. As with any fine graduate school, "research" and "education" need each other for effective progress.

Today I attach the profile of one of these regional centres for space science and technology education. The profile is from the "Centre for Basic Space Science" in Nigeria, and it is hot off the press.

Most humbly and faithfully yours,
George Maeda
