With the fall of the Berlin Wall, the enlargement of the European Union (EU) by countries from the former Central and Eastern Europe became possible. Science and education are among the best assets of the accession countries, but the unfettered free market represents an increasing threat to their intellectual capital. Science and education have long been instruments of international cooperation. Now they have a vital role to play in leading Europe towards a new age of enlightenment.
