Science is Doing What Politics Cannot Do

25 May , 16:30–17:45
The Global Economy in an Era of Change
Panel Session
Congress Centre, Conference Hall D4

Trends in scientific development which have emerged in recent decades have raised questions about the future of science as a field. On the one hand, it is actively engaging and developing established disciplines, but, on the other hand, it is eroding the boundaries between these disciplines through the implementation of common methods of research and design. Since such research promises still greater and more revolutionary discoveries affecting almost every aspect of our work and daily life, it will inevitably attract more and more participants in the process, leading to the accelerated development of science. Is science without borders a possibility? Can science be the basis for new international collaboration? Which formats can help to develop and promote collaboration through scientific pursuits?
