The world is facing existential challenges that will not be solved without sciences and humanities. To make full use of science’s potential to change the world, we need more open science and interaction between scientists, other stakeholders and the public. At the same time, policymakers need to acknowledge the importance of scientific knowledge, ensure science is well resourced, and that research knowledge is utilised in decision-making.


We have a long history of working with academia. We have, for example, supported universities in their strategy processes and facilitated stakeholder interaction efforts. Our experience combined with a vast understanding of wider ongoing societal transformations makes us a unique actor whose love for science is always at the core of all action. We believe in humankind’s ability to solve our existing problems.
