To one who has seen the adverse effects of some technologies on the environment the question how does technology protect the environment? Technology is the application of scientifically gained knowledge for practical purpose. We build on the excellent work of our predecessors in CODATA, including the intellectual leadership of the past President Geoffrey Boulton and in close collaboration our parent organisation, the International Science Council.

That technology can then be used to advance our scientific knowledge as well. TIME Magazine’s Century of Science’s greatest scientist for 1907 was Maria Montessori, who realised this was in error, referring to the entropic second law as the Greed Energy Law that would only bring about economic collapses and continual warfare.

The democratization of energy will bring with it a fundamental reordering of all human relationships, impacting the very way we conduct business, govern society, educate and engage in civic and cultural activities. The Science of Genetics opening new doors of understanding the human gene and cell.

Technology alludes to the practical application of the scientific knowledge for various purposes. In addition to the six Chinese Academy of Sciences academicians at HKUST, nine faculty members are included in the National Science and Technology Programs Expert Database.

Subsequently, science and technology have assisted in advancing various fields including Mathematics, Astrophysics, Space technology, Nuclear energy and more. Evidence should be drawn from local, cluster-wide, regional and national information, using a range of established sources, e.g. the National Network for Excellence in Science and Technology.
