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 group 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.

Affinity Groups Directory

Current and alumni fellows can access the full list of currently active affinity groups and learn how to get involved by clicking here. STPF will be adopting Trellis as the official communication platform for all things fellows and fellowship. Trellis is a platform that supports communication and collaboration among scientists. All affinity groups (and fellows) will be given access in August/September 2015. The directory will be updated in late July to redirect users to Trellis. Learn more about STPF and Trellis.
