Despite the political tensions in the world, the scientific community is confident in maintaining professional and collegial relations. Authoritative scientific organizations and foundations have great respect for Russia’s achievements and contribution into the global system of science and education. A scientist is always a man of the world, he (or she) seeks to unite people, and each discovery is a big step towards a great change and the future of all mankind. Representatives of the business community and scientific and educational organizations should understand the problem of teamwork and must have a clear understanding of mutual expectations. he basis for the mutual trust are clear intentions, and it occurs not at once, but during the development of cooperation.
