Bridging Paradigm Shift in Science with Tackling Global Challenges

In recent years, paradigm shift in science gradually becomes a hot topic in the scientific community. Meanwhile, tackling global challenges such as climate change, natural disasters, and serious diseases is also quite urgent.However, these two aspects are often touched separately. For the former, discussions focus on general trends, and for the latter, more considerations are given to detailed issues. Unification of the two aspects could propel the two aspects in a synergistic way, and breakthroughs might be made more efficiently. The key is to find the bridge.
