Global Science Corps

The Global Science Corps (GSC) was a program concept, never realized, intended to place senior scientists and engineers from scientifically advanced countries at universities and research institutes in developing countries, including RISE and MSI institutions, for up to a year, to share expertise and collaborate with local partners. It was meant to help the host institutions develop their S&T research capacity through interaction with and instruction from GSC Fellows; provide GSC Fellows with a unique and valuable research experience; and promote sustained collaborations after the fellowship period.

While SIG was not able to attract the substantial funding that would have been required to implement the GSC, the background materials available through the links at right provide something of a blueprint for organizations interested in pursuing similar initiatives.
