Many outstanding recent advances have come from interaction among individuals from various disciplines, creating new departments of knowledge. This has resulted in new insights about the world in which we live, new disease cures have been found, and new profitable industries have developed.
Some examples of such departments are – molecular biology, biotechnology, genetic engineering, computer science and information technology, space sciences, geosciences, motion picture and television arts and sciences, instrumentation, and process and control engineering. Most fields of knowledge have impact on others. So an Academy bringing members of diverse fields together has many benefits for the individual and for the community.
