Global corroboration in innovations and sciences: what's the limitation? What would it lead us?

Thinking the world become like TED community where people from different professions come together, share their passions in specific object, get other people inspired and (I hope) they become partner in the corroboration projects, is it possible? in real world?
I know that there are many business partners out there, trying to develop innovations together, which is not a bad thing. But I think more about innovation such as drug discovery, alternative energy, or other sciences breakthrough which will be benefit for everyone. Instead of each organisation doing their hard work, should they talk more to each other and work together?
What do you guys think? What would be the obstacle? And what we can do to encourage corroboration for global benefit?

  • Jul 5 2011: I think a major obstacle towards collaborating on a mightier scale towards groundbreaking research and innovation in some of the sectors that you mentioned is that there are more barriers and restrictions to it than ways to make it happen, whether they be geographical, bureucratic or technological.
    So , it would require some very highly motivated bunch of individuals to really go through with and push towards such collaborations. The more the barriers to entry are torn down....The easier it becomes for all of us
