Global Science Corps

The Global Science Corps (GSC) is an as-yet unrealized initiative with the goal of placing scientists and engineers (postdoctoral level and up) from scientifically advanced countries at universities and research institutes in developing countries – including RISE and MSI institutions – to share expertise and collaborate with local partners. The objectives of the year-long GSC placements are to help the host institutions develop their S&T research capacity through interaction with and instruction from GSC Fellows, provide the Fellows with a unique and valuable research experience, and promote sustained collaboration between GSC Fellows and the researchers at the host institution after their formal placement has ended.
