Global science accelerates innovation and development.

Our mission is to partner with institutions of learning, foundations, government and industry, in the United States and abroad to create centers of research in foundational sciences to address global problems and build a culture of science.

Global Science Nodes

Centers of Global Science are where the brightest emerging scholars from all over the world are drawn to be mentored by world-renowned scientists, earn graduate degrees, and gain unparalleled experience that will launch their scientific careers.

Berkeley Emerging Research Scholars (BERS)

BERS is a global approach to science that reaches scholars from the US and abroad during their high school, undergraduate, and graduate studies. It is a program that breaks down barriers and transcends traditional boundaries.

Global Science Schools and Workshops

The Berkeley Global Science Institute regularly organizes and hosts international symposia, workshops, and schools in order to provide educational and professional development as well as to grow the global science network.
