Keeps the heart of human progress beating:


Good for our life:

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.

At the heart of everything we do:

Human progress

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.

human progress."
