A Creative Milieu at Oxford U.

The James Martin 21st Century School at Oxford University is featured in the latest issue of the journal Nature. This school, directed by Ian Goldin, focuses on solving humanity's broadest issues. Each institute within the school is run by teams of scientists and thinkers from a variety of disciplines. The idea is to converge human learning from different angles in an open approach. Several notable institutions of higher learning encourage interdisciplinary studies but this is the most radical format I have read of yet. I expect great new and very relevant ideas from Oxford in the near future. What a great way to foster a creative milieu.
