Without understanding how things work, we can’t fix them when they’re broken. In this day of modern diseases, this is critical. Fundamental science - biology, chemistry, physics, math – is our toolbox with which we can make smart solutions for medicine, our environment and technology.
Breeding ground for our innovation ecosystem
All Nobel Prize winners are awarded for their discoveries that fill a gap in our current knowledge. The ‘spill-over’ from their findings generate progress and shape our society. We recognise the importance of scientific curiosity and have created the Science for Life domain in Utrecht that serves as a breeding ground for our innovation ecosystem.
