Abstract

January 1st 2019 marked the 3rd Universal Scientific Education and Research Network (USERN) anniversary, a non-profit scientific network to mean "science without borders" (1-4). Three years ago on January 1st 2016, USERN held the 1st meeting of USERN Advisory Board members, looking up to the group of about 30 of world’s top 1% scientists to build the scientific network envisioned as the main goal in its statute (5,6). Never did we think that in three years the USERN Advisory Board would reach the number 370 among them 13 Nobel Prize and 2 Abel Prize laureates (7). The annual USERN Congress and Prize Festival is a known identity among international scientific community and has been held since 2016 each year, hosted with various universities/countries, with more integrity and impact (8).
