About Science and Engineering Diasporas

Networks of Diasporas in Engineering and Science (NODES) is a partnership between the American Association for the Advancement of Science, the U.S. Department of State, the National Academy of Sciences and the National Academy of Engineering. It strives to support science and engineering diaspora networks by sharing best practices and knowledge, convening diaspora groups,  and catalyzing their growth by linking them with useful tools and institutions so that these knowledge networks can have greater impact in their country of origin and in the United States.
