Science breakfasts

Together with the Science Diplomats Club, the Office of Science and Technology organizes monthly Science Breakfasts, where a prominent member of the American science and technology community, speaks to an audience of counselors from embassies in Washington. Since January 2007, these breakfasts have provided the 30-40 guests from 15-20 countries, with the opportunity to strengthen ties with American leaders in science and technology in a positive atmosphere. Visits from notable guests such as the Undersecretaries for Science in the Departments of Homeland Security and Energy as well as directors from NOAA, DARPA and the American Chemical Society have often led to further cooperation amongst their organizations.
