All people of the world face common challenges such as global warming, water resource scarcity, and food security. Science can offer an optimal approach to mitigating these problems. One is the InterAcademy Panel IAP , a global network of science acad- emies, with the goal of providing decisionmakers with rational so- lutions to global challenges.
The IAP works with an engineering analog, a medical analog, and a body that provides in-depth rec- ommendations on global issues to policy makers. Comments Guyon: Clearly, academies are playing important roles. But in my opinion, their functions should not replace the responsi- bilities of their member citizens.
On problems of ethics, for exam- ple, I have seen a number of ethics committees. I presume that they are knowledgeable and should do their jobs. On the other hand, such institutions should not prevent the citizens from being in- formed adequately to contribute. Be- cause of its disciplinary character, however, it is often separated from culture. Past technologies that were developed through means different from modern techniques were intimately connected with the ways of life of the people.
The question remains open whether one is justified to use any technology that science produces. Comments Guyon: Nanoscience, high energy physics, and related de- velopments are getting closer and closer to becoming technologies.
For example, we are now working with Bose-Einstein condensa- tion. At the same time, it is important to know how new sciences like nanoscience will impact technology. This will give people more freedom of choice to accept or reject scientific achievements.
Khajehpour: I have a bit harsher understanding of Dr. I think what he wants to say is that the mod- ern sciences started by claiming to conquer and even, as Hume puts it, to rape nature.
This was the way people thought and ex- pressed their endeavors. But by the mid-century and onwards, with the very rapid advance of science, this conquering has included the human being himself.
Now we are living with a different approach to science that I believe should be corrected and should be examined care- fully. Junes Ipakschi: In my opinion, there is no clear separation between science and technology. The technology of producing chemicals is part of science, as is medicine. In the case of medicine, the person who makes it is an engineer. He uses the basic knowl- edge that exists. We need to learn from the past to inform the future. Comments Masoumi: Before the revolution, there was very strong sci- entific cooperation between Iran and the United States After the revolution there was a new phase with drastically reduced commu- nications.
Cooperation has always been dependent on political situations.
I have three questions: How does this come about? Can we envisage another situation in which political changes do not affect scientific relations to such a degree? Has the new phase of cooperation between Iranian and American academies led to any concrete research projects or cooperation on specific problem?
Sobouti: You are saying that international collaboration depends on the support of governments and that individual roles can be enhanced or diminished, depending on the policies at higher levels. In any event, collaborations always need patrons. Schweitzer: You are certainly right. But there is one point that is important. Scientific collaboration can have the capability of withstanding political assaults, if you like.
So in the case of Iran and the United States, the fact is that many Iranian students went to the United States, for example, and came back despite political changes in Tehran. They are still trying to maintain their collabora- tion, in spite of the political situation.

Are there any success stories in recent times? I think the number of joint publications between Iranian and American scien- tists is very high relative to the number of joint publications be- tween Iranians and scientists of other countries. The fact that there are so many joint publications, even at this most difficult time, supports the idea that cooperation can withstand political assaults.
Guyon: It would be very valuable if historians studied cases similar to U. To wit is the case of the Soviet Union and the rest of the world during the Cold War era. Collaborations between scientists, and particularly space scientists, all over the world were excellent. I am very familiar with the diffi- culties of the peoples of Argentina and Chile with the rest of the world and also the case of French scientists during the difficult time of fascism in France.
Despite the difficulties with the gov- ernments, scientific contacts were maintained without interrup- tions. I have followed very closely Chile after Pinochet, and I can say that there was no break in collaborations despite political diffi- culties.

Opportunities exist for interna- tional collaboration in 1 prediction of strong ground motions, 2 earthquake rupture forecasting, and 3 education of the public about earthquake risk. It can withstand political upheav- als in developing countries. This sort of cooperation is hard to develop, but when it is developed it will endure changes that may happen between the states. It will endure because it is scientific work and because determined scientists are involved. They come to a much wider understanding of what the scientific work is about.
Duhamel: I am in charge of the scientific collaboration be- tween France and Iran. We have a lot of cooperation between France and Iran. It could be useful not only to have bilateral col- laborations but also to think of multilateral and international coop- eration.
One of our projects is to create a common doctoral pro- gram in mathematics jointly among France, Spain, and probably Germany. Other countries may also join. Seismology is particu- larly of interest. Geologists are interested in data coming from earthquake-prone Iran. Duhamel just said. In the past years, we have trained about 35 scientists in collaboration with France. The program started as a pilot project. The program required a student to spend a year in France to complete his thesis project.
Most of these scientists, with the exception of a few, are teaching in Iranian universities all over the country. To that end, strong international partnerships through institutional collaborative pro- grams are most welcome, particularly for capacity building.
Comments Ipakschi: I am an engineer, and I think that science and technology are different.
Open Forum 3: Student Book
Guyon: In fact, the difference is huge because of the lack of technological training of young people. This lack of technologi- cal training is related to the lack of equipment, not necessarily heavy equipment.
Technology in most of Africa is at a low level. It is not uncommon to see very good African scientists.
But these young scientists are not often capable of developing experiments. One should emphasize adequate basic training in experimental sci- ence.
Sobouti: My point is that developing a society is a very complex task because societies are very complex systems.
In com- plex problems, one cannot pinpoint all impeding factors and make adequate provisions for them. At most, one can come up with an average and approximate solution. It ei- ther moves forward or backward, but a society is different.
To de- velop a society, you need all possibilities at your disposal, and these possibilities include the talent of everyone that you may find in the society.
To make those talents flourish, you need a high de- gree of literacy. It is good literacy that I wish to emphasize. If applied wisely, science and technology can help to find pathways to a secure energy future for all people.
The objective should be to improve lives every- where and to protect the environment. Iran has the second largest liquid oil reserve in the world and the second largest gas reserve. Given that, we should acknowledge that cooperation in the energy area is very important for Iran. What do you think about the future of nuclear power and CO2?
Colglazier: Nuclear power is not totally free of CO2 be- cause you have to manufacture and produce the equipment for the power plants. A one-time biomedical scientist who has moved into the humanities via Open Access and Open Data advocacy, his research and broader work focuses on how we can make the institutions that support research sustainable and fit for purpose for the 21st century and how the advent of new communications technology is a help and in some cases a hindrance for this.
