In the first days of the New Year, FSTC team is pleased to present to our wide community Issue 10 of this periodic publication. We list in this new release detailed coverage on FSTC recent activities including the work of its members and subsidiaries. This Issue highlights the continuing success of “1001 Inventions” in its world tour, which now brings it to the South Asian shores, in Malaysia. In partnership with National Geographic, FSTC produced content for a new kids book based on the 1001 Inventions book. FSTC President, Chairman, members of FSTC Advisory Board, the Research Team and the Editorial Board continued lecturing and publishing on different subjects around the world. The dissemination of knowledge about the cultural roots of science and technology, which is FSTC’s main objective and fundamental mission, is pursued with the same dedication. Many other initiatives and projects are in the pipeline for 2013; all to be reported in forthcoming issues. You can also keep in touch with us and know more through our electronic platforms.
