Knowledge and science integration is one of the leading Noosphere initiatives. We combine philosophy, science and experience with the Vertical Knowledge Integration concept framework.
On November 5, 2014, Dnipropetrovsk hosted a joint seminar between several Noosphere members and the Office of the President of O. Honchar Dnipropetrovsk National University. The meeting focused on what each could bring to the table in the fields of education, science and innovations if they were to establish a Noosphere-Dnipropetrovsk National University cooperation.
“Our paradigm involves integration with university science programs. In the framework of this cooperation we would like to teach students how to think, but not just how to earn a profit. It is important to ask the question “What is the reason?” before you do something. People should be able to discuss the idea and present sound reasons to pursue it” explained prominent Ukrainian lecturer and scientist Igor G. Khanin.
Noosphere has always supported educational projects. Today, as a part of an already-existing agreement with the Dnipropetrovsk National University, the Noosphere Engineering School is making good headway. “I am excited about the success that we are going to achieve together. Within the framework of this joint project, the Noosphere Engineering School, we plan to work out a mutual curriculum, lecture on relevant topics and consider possible graduation theses” said Professor Mykola V. Polyakov, President of O. Honchar Dnipropetrovsk National University.
Noosphere believes that knowledge and science should be partners, and their cooperation should be indivisible. We are always eager to support projects like this and hope that our initiatives will provide further benefits to society.
