The Caribbean Diaspora for Science, Technology & Innovation-UK (“CADSTI” UK”) is a body of UK based professionals  who value the potential of  science, technology and engineering  to equip Caribbean communities with the skills needed to succeed in future industries and business markets.

We are the UK branch of an  international body  of  professionals  (“CADSTI”) with an interest in the social and economic development of the Caribbean region.  CADSTI actively seeks to harness the diverse, dispersed  and largely untapped talent of the Caribbean Diaspora  to catalyse Caribbean innovation and entrepreneurship through  a strategic focus on science, technology and engineering – see CADSTI.

CADSTI is led by the eminent MIT Professor Cardinal  Warde and is headquartered in Boston.

There are now CADSTI branches in Silicon Valley, New England,  US South East,  US  Mid  Atlantic,  Canada  and the  UK.

CADSTI works through the Caribbean Science Foundation which is headquartered  in  Barbados  – see CSF
