How borderless science is in our collective best interest?

Why do we believe that science without borders and the formation of a global network can be a way of solving complex human issues? Have we predicted a correct future for human beings from the distant past, or to what extent have they been come true? Widespread social networking and thus increasing the networking of people together, has raised a lot of questions and concerns, such as their impact on personal life, fear of loneliness and increased sense of need for interpersonal communication! Dr. Nima Rezaie will answer the question “Why Science Without Borders Should Be Our Best Priority”. He also tells us about the removal of the boundaries between science and art, how to form a global education network and the future of science plus our knowledge without geographical boundaries.
