Science Across Virtual Institutes (SAVI) is an innovative concept to foster interaction among scientists, engineers and educators around the globe. It is based on the knowledge that excellence in STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) research and education exists in many parts of the world, and that scientific advances can be accelerated by scientists and engineers working together across international borders. Virtual institutes that connect researchers with common interests and goals will have a great impact on solving important societal challenges.
