The S2ERC Fellow designation is intended to draw experienced professionals who possess great technical knowledge, who might not otherwise be involved, to the S2ERC. Fellows bring value to the S2ERC community with their input on research directions and specific technical issues. An S2ERC Fellow must be nominated by a current S2ERC industrial affiliate, an active participating S2ERC academic researcher, or a member of the S2ERC administration. The Fellow pin design is based on the West African Akan symbol Nea Onnim.2Literally translated, it means "He who does not know can become knowledgeable from learning;2he who thinks he knows and ceases to continue to learn will stagnate."2The Akan believe that the search for knowledge is a life-long process. 2


 S2ERC's current fellows are David Dorenbos, Glenn Racine.
