Is sustainable global prosperity possible?
International science and engineering partnerships in developed and developing countries will enormously help in improving relations among countries and raise the quality of life and sustainable development in developing countries for global prosperity.
In 2004, I met the late Nobel Laureate, Richard E. Smalley (1943-2005). He named the following top ten problems of humanity over the next 50 years:
(6) terrorism & war,
(9) democracy, and (10) population.
Addressing these requires collaborative worldwide efforts.
My mission is to bring physical/social scientists, engineers, and business leaders together to address the global grand challenges. I would like to promote global quality of life and economic well-being by facilitating exchanges among the best and brightest scientists and engineers. The worldwide exchange of ideas already fuels economic growth in advanced economies and will increasingly enable less developed nations to participate in the global economy.
