The MOST Programme encourages UNESCO Member States to establish MOST National Committees to spur co-operation between researchers, decision makers and the Programme.
Member States are free to establish the structure and composition of a National Committee according to their own priorities. Committees are generally constituted with the support of UNESCO National Commissions, in conformity with Resolution 13.11 of the 28th General Conference. Alternatively, any institution with responsibility for scientific policy, such as a national research council, may host a Committee.
The functions of the Committee and samples of their activities – are described in the MOST National Committee Guidelines [PDF, 302 KB].
