Researchers are under pressure to produce results faster. Ironically, many scientists can't keep up with what's being published as they’re busy publishing. How do we get off this Hamster Wheel?Learn More
Most respondents are fairly satisfied with how public funding is prioritized. But its share in R&D budgets has declined. This could be bad for long-term research which drives innovation. How can it be balanced?Learn More
Internal collaboration drives research productivity, half our survey respondents claim. But large teams are seen as a significant barrier to research productivity. How can we ensure productive collaboration?Learn More
These days, research requires larger teams with greater individual specialization. But larger teams are harder to manage. This may negatively impact productivity. What’s the solution?Learn More
vibrant science & technology
Science. You may think it’s very rational. It isn’t. It can be very emotional. Medicines that save lives. Self-driving cars that give us goosebumps. Computers that fascinate us. Space missions that amaze us. This is why we love science - it keeps the heart of human progress beating. We, as a science and technology company, dedicate our work to human progress. Science, together with curiosity and a strong pioneering spirit, helps us find solutions to global challenges so we can make a positive difference in the lives of millions of people.
Scientific research has an enormous impact on how we innovate and develop technologies, thus ultimately boosting human progress. For that reason, it’s important to keep science productive.
research on scientific research?
What's the current state of scientific research productivity? What questions need to be asked to ensure such research is more productive in the future? We’ve conducted a study to explore which levers need to be pulled to increase productivity.
Interview with Belén Garijo, Chair of the Executive Board and CEO.
Interview with Professor Stuart Conway, University of Oxford, UK
At our company, we’re curious minds dedicated to human progress. But progress isn’t possible without questioning the status quo. And that’s what we do. This motivates us and helps us push boundaries, to be agile and to think diversely.
It also helps us to meet the standards we set for ourselves, to be pioneers at the forefront of science. In turn, this generates an impact that affects us all.
We dare to question business as usual, to outperform and to accelerate breakthroughs.
We believe in science as a force for good. In times of constant global change and challenges, we should all work to sustain human progress.
"Scientific research is a critical force in advancing
