The Project: Impact of Science and Engineering on Improving Humanity’s Quality of Life

It is our intention to develop stimulating conversations that empower our citizens to work toward using science and technology to improve their quality of life, medicine and the environment in order to create a sustainable world and, ultimately, to aid in the upliftment of humanity.

You'll be doing research on one or more of the topics below; you may choose your topic/s. You'll then have the opportunity to write an article on your research; your byline will always be included. The IFGT will publish your articles in our newsletters, on the website and elsewhere.

Your articles will provide information for the IFGT's Transformational Conversations on humanity's relationship with Science and Engineering. These conversations will take place during webinars, radio interviews, videos, Ted Talks, etc. If you wish, you can present your research and take part in the conversations.

These are the areas on which we will focus. You may choose one or more.

  1. Health and medicine: devices, etc.
  2. Manufacturing: how helped quality of life
  3. Automotive: machines that help life better
  4. Environment
  5. Energy
  6. Agriculture

If you enjoy research and writing articles, you can help us spread the word about how science and engineering are improving our everyday lives, the economy and the environment. Today’s explosion of advancements in life-changing technologies - including 3D printing, biotechnology, neurotechnology, information technology, artificial intelligence and automation - are having an immense affect upon society.

These stimulating articles, conversations and activities will empower our citizens to work toward using science, engineering and their resultant technologies to improve all aspects of life and the environment, thus helping to create a sustainable world and, ultimately, to aid in the upliftment of humanity.
