Science & Education

Fundamental and applied research continues to receive huge funding today, remaining a major driver of progress. In this section we write about cutting-edge scientific achievements (including independent ones) and educational opportunities available to forward-looking people. Who does what and where, what grants are awarded and who gets them, what to expect from the discoveries at the interface of various scientific disciplines and where one can learn things that are going to spread a year, five or ten years from now. You will find all about it here.
