About Scientifiques Sans Frontières
The mission of Scientifiques Sans Frontières Australia is to provide the scientific link in the aid network of nongovernmental organisations (NGOs). At the heart of SSF are our three objectives. Firstly, to link scientific research with community self-identified problems so successful outcomes can be achieved; secondly, assist in improving conditions in the developing world through scientific and technological solutions; and thirdly to advance developing world science to become equal in status with the developed world.
Scientifiques Sans Frontières Australia (Scientists without Borders Australia) works with individuals and the broader community to improve quality of life through scientific education and the implementation of sustainable scientific programs. SSF aims to inspire other scientists to action, promote social awareness and improve ourselves.
If you are a scientist who is passionate in using your knowledge and skills of your profession to help individuals and communities in need, then we are the organisation that can help you.
We are a community of like-minded scientists that wish to assist communities solve their self-identified problems with scientific solutions.
The philosophy behind SSF’s galaxy logo is that each ellipse represents a specific scientific discipline, which when aligned in the correct manner can generate an entirely different structure, that of SSF.
