Affinity Groups

Fellow affinity groups are formed and managed by current and alumni Fellows. They provide a forum to meet and discuss issues related to areas of targeted interest, including various areas of science, policy, and other topical issues.

A few examples of current affinity groups include: Big Data, Energy and Climate, Combating Weapons of Mass Destruction, and Science Diplomacy. Affinity groups activities range from presentations and discussions with distinguished guest speakers, to monthly meetings and gatherings over coffee, workshops, full day symposia, and multi-day conferences.
