Paging Mr. Bond

Declan Butler probed into a shadowy organization with "3,000 scientists, including more than 100 Nobel laureates" on its membership rolls.
"Nature polled several WIF fellows who advertise their fellowships on their websites. What emerges is a pattern whereby scientists join on the strength of the list of existing members, but know little about the foundation or its activities."
"Among the WIF’s stated goals are the creation “for the future benefit of all humankind” of the ORE-STEM Complex, a proposed US$22.5 billion proposal it describes as a “scientific, technological, engineering and manufacturing complex — the world’s largest open-research establishment."

Visionary futurist organization, or Bond supervillain organization.

You make the call.
