Palestine Academy for Science and Technology (PALAST) is an autonomous public, not-for-profit organization with its headquarters in Jerusalem and branches in Ramallah and Gaza. Established by presidential decree No. 114 in 1997 and reconfirmed by presidential decree No. 13 in 2004, the Academy is mandated to be the primary science and technology body in the country in charge of providing advice in formulating policies, programs and projects to support national development and participating in the coordination of relevant scientific and technological (S&T) activities. As a result, the Academy constitutes the focal point and an umbrella for science and technology.
