Making a positive difference: Our work is fueled by the belief that science is a force for good. That’s why we’re focusing our most innovative R&D on issues that have world-changing potential.
We are leading the way
For more than 350 years, we have been pushing the boundaries of what’s possible. And we will continue to do this in years to come - with technologies that can change the rules of the game in entire industries and make a difference to millions of people’s lives every day.
We are curious minds dedicated to human progress.
Proof points how we shape tomorrow
Collaborating on big data
Our joint ventures Syntropy™ and Athinia™ are change-makers in big data, encouraging collaboration and driving progress in the healthcare and semiconductor industries.
Photoelectrochemical cells mimic photosynthesis to remove CO2 more efficiently than plants, creating carbon products for easy, safe, and sustainable storage.
We strive for the highest research ethics and welfare for all animals used in our research – and our ambition is to phase out this animal use.
DNA damage response
Drugs that block different DNA damage repair pathways could be used alone and together with chemo-, radio- and immunotherapy to transform cancer care.
Perovskite solar cells
Versatile, efficient, and now stable: how advances in perovskite solar cells promise to revolutionize the semiconductor industry and lead to portable solar power.
Our new advanced 3D cell model is accelerating the search for new chemoprevention drugs that offer hope of eradicating the disease once and for all.
Drug delivery vehicles
Lipid nanoparticles (LNPs) underpin Covid-19 mRNA vaccines and are set to transform the future of medicine by delivering cutting-edge RNA therapeutics into cells.
Data and digital health
By bringing the power of machine learning and artificial intelligence to solve medical problems, new digital health tools promise to revolutionize remote patient care.
The CO2 to fuel generator
The 2022 Future Insight Prize winner: A dream product that draws CO2 from the air to generate a sustainable, carbon-negative fuel source to meet our growing energy demands.
Robots in the workplace
We are piloting a range of robot applications to help protect our workforce, enhance their work environment, and free up time to focus on innovation.
Tiny electrodes that record and stimulate nerve activity could help to monitor and treat a wide range of diseases.
Our new green solvents enable faster, more effective cleaning during semiconductor manufacturing, using fewer chemicals, and reducing the industry’s environmental footprint.
We are pushing the boundaries of what is possible and creating opportunities for all to ensure a sustainable and long-term future for our world.
