INTRODUCTION: Biophysics is fundamental interdisciplinary science for biology-ecology-medicine-physics. Progressive increase of importance of biophysics for global health & ecological problems needs new approaches to conceptions about education & research in this field.

CONCEPTION: (a) Creation of common IUPAB-commissions & continental societies (see-c.) for future integrative biophysics in context of scientific theory/moral-philosophy, (b) implication of biophysical topics into int. congresses for philosophy (FISP, etc.), psychology (IUPsyS), physiology (IUPS), chemistry (IUPAC), also in clinical-medicine (FIGO/ISIM/SIU,etc.), (c) similar to (b), also interdisciplinary-topics to biophysical congresses (IUPAB etc.) and journals, (d) foundation/enlargement of inter-facultative institutes for biophysics (e), united in national/continental (e.g. American/European) and international institutes via network, (f) integrated to international universities proposed by Bertrand Russell (British Nobel-Laureate) as paradigm for better education-research-technology.

Fundamentals for (d-f) could be: 1. Common educational/research programmes& 2. administration/laboratories, 3. establishment of international/continental  professors/doctors, directors,etc., 4. international employees at institutes/branches in Africa-America-Asia-Australia-Europe, 5. regular successive financial support for participants/projects by national ministries, European Union,etc., 6. Possibility for whole life work after 60 years as senior-scientist incl. functions of honorary professors/institute-directors, etc.

CONCLUSION: Enlarged implication of moral-philosophy and scientific-theory is necessary for better education & research in biophysics (a), developing help (b), counteraction of misuse of biophysical discoveries (c) in context of UNO-Agenda21 for better health-education-ecology in all countries. IUPAB, together with continental & national societies (African-American-Asian-Australia-European) could play a leading role in this matter.
