Does your company have a Global Citizenship or Social Innovation campaign?

iMENTORS is now recording the ICT projects related to the Brain Gain Initiative and the Catalyst Initiative.  Both of these initiatives are part of the Social Innovation Program at Hewlett-Packard (HP) Company.

HP formed a partnership with the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) first in 2003 to start the Brain Gain Initiative with the goal of reversing the "brain drain" from areas affected by the emigration of scientists and scholars.  The project aims instead to foster a "brain gain" by creating a sustainable university infrastructure for science.  The project was a success and expanded in 2009 and again in 2011.

HP's Catalyst Initiative was formed to explore innovative approaches in the teaching of science, technology, engineering, math and computer science (STEMx), and many of the institutions receiving Catalyst grants work closely together with the Brain Gain Initiative program.
