This would help avoid new technologies being met with scepticism and unfounded fears, and also better equip people to assess the risks new technologies pose. This challenge must be faced in three ways: improved scientific education for the general public, in school, at university and at other national research bodies.

The science academies advise the heads of state and government to support the governments of developing countries in establishing and maintaining a functioning infrastructure for education.
