‘The Science Bridge’ initiative

In many surveys conducted around the globe in different cultures and societies, health is the number one priority for everyone. It is clear that to effectively ‘globalize’ health care will require ‘sustained’ collaborations between nations at all levels of health care activities, beginning with the discovery of disease mechanisms and new treatments.

‘The Science Bridge’ (TSB) initiative is a non-profit, peace-building humanitarian endeavor with a unique approach to engage scientists from different cultures and nations to collaborate on specific scientific research themes.

We believe that to make its scientific mission and social goal successful and sustainable, collaborative research should be largely performed within and between partner ‘Twin Institutes’ strategically located in collaborating nations. To improve relations between the Western and the Middle-Eastern countries, the goal of our project is to build two TSB institutes, one located in a Middle-Eastern country and an another one located in a Western country. In this way, scientific collaborations on projects of mutual interest will foster better understanding and good relations between people of different cultures and nations and set into motion our collective desire to make our world a better place for all.

 

connecting science

The formation of bonds between different atoms results in molecules with novel properties. Similarly, the encounter of different faiths and cultures leads to new vistas and human progress if peaceful and driven by mutual interest and open exchange. Scientific collaboration is based on common scientific interests and the free exchange of techniques and ideas, and thus ideally suited to build bridges between people of different origins. Scientific research, which is aimed at improving health care for the well-being of humanity is a fundamental need that transcends cultures and religious beliefs and will build trust and cooperation.
