Section 10. Science and technology are essential for national development and progress. Technology is used for communication, manufacturing, learning, securing data and transportation; it is often a consequence of science and engineering, but technology as a human activity precedes the other two fields. It shall encourage the widest participation of private groups, local governments, and community-based organizations in the generation and utilization of science and technology.
Welcome to the 10th edition of Pan European Networks: Science & Technology, bringing together the key voices in the European scientific community and the leading trends in science, research and innovation. Now technology is able to help man move his mind faster and to more places in the same way. Due to technological changes, the dependency upon technology has increased many folds. In the past, almost everything was analog but thanks to the science and technology we are now being digitalized by the day. What was once done at normal speed in the traditional way can now be accelerated to hyper speeds with technology.
It is widely known throughout both the academic and scientific communities of Europe that in order to do this there must be a uniform approach to dissemination; one which enables all policy makers and budget holders to acquire the necessary information needed to allocate funding.
Science and technology has actually largely contributed to the vision of man about himself. Controversies such as modified foods, stem cell research are the issues that have brought policy makers and scientists together to have a way forward on this. When technology is offered to children too early, during human developmental years, it creates a problem. Secondly, when technology goes in the wrong hands then it can negatively impact society such as the increasing rate of cyder crime, hacking, stealing of personal information and pornography websites.
The state-of-the-art technology has improved our means of communication as well as our educational standards. It is even safe to say that patient safety and comfort are the foremost consideration in the incorporation of technology in the health care industry, as most modern treatments considered people friendly. There seems to be a medication for almost every ailment these days and it wouldn’t be possible without modern day technology.
