In his speech, Dr. Hesham Saeed confirmed that the symposium aims at defining a vision, strategies, and future outlook for interdisciplinary, cross-disciplinary and transient sciences, noting that this symposium is the second, as the first meeting was in May 2023 in Cairo under the patronage of Professor Dr. Ayman Ashour, Minister of Higher Education and Scientific Research, in cooperation With the Egyptian Knowledge Bank, during which the Egyptian National Interdisciplinary Network was announced.
 
 
 
Dr. Saeed added that the need for multidisciplinary curricula has become more urgent than ever before, as collective efforts and interdisciplinary, diverse, and overlapping disciplines can shape the path of knowledge and create significant, meaningful changes and impacts. He pointed out that interdisciplinary and cross-disciplinary sciences are considered an important field that brings together many different disciplines and scientific fields that interact with each other, and cooperate to solve problems and explore complex topics that transcend the boundaries of traditional disciplines.
 
 
 
He added that through this type of science, methods and concepts from different disciplines such as chemistry, physics, biology, mathematics, and biostatistics are employed to understand the natural phenomena in a deeper and broader way, as well as concepts and approaches in various fields such as medicine, engineering and computers to produce innovative solutions to scientific problems, and to enhance cooperation between researchers and specialists in multiple fields in order to face current global challenges and achieve progress and prosperity in various scientific fields and human technology.
Dr. Saeed stressed that biochemistry, nanoscience, and biology neuroscience are some of the interdisciplinary fields that have grown into their own specializations. He added that trans-science is one through which non-academic stakeholders can be involved in the knowledge production process and is considered a promising idea for addressing the world's most pressing issues, knowledge production and decision-making.

While Dr. Boshra Salem gave a presentation on the Egyptian National Interdisciplinary Network (ENIN), and its scope and objectives. Salem indicated that interdisciplinary sciences have an important and vital role in confronting many of the phenomena occurring in the world, such as the phenomenon of climate change, which requires cooperation between different disciplines to reach innovative solutions involving relevant experts. She pointed out that the network aspires to achieve cooperation between Egyptian universities in the interdisciplinary sciences to deal with complex challenges that individual disciplines are unable to deal with. She also added that Alexandria University seeks to activate this idea by hosting the Egyptian National Interdisciplinary Network in Universities is in its first activity since its launch in May 2023, with the aim of disseminating the idea of interdisciplinary programs in higher education, especially since it is one of the pillars of the 2030 Strategy of the Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research.
