What’s Next in Science is accelerated discovery

Scientific discovery is driven by two forces: the development of new capabilities, and the relentless tenacity of the world’s sharpest minds.

We see it as our duty to accelerate scientific progress by developing cutting-edge technologies, demonstrating scalable processes, and deploying new models of collaborative innovation.

This is how we will tackle the world’s most pressing issues, together.

Strategic workstreams

Supercharging the scientific method

We’re creating novel solutions to supercharge the scientific method, from conducting background research to testing hypotheses and analyzing results.

Building communities of discovery

We’re bringing together the sharpest minds across industry, government, and academia to solve problems collaboratively using our tools and capabilities.

Impacting at scale

We’re applying deep technical expertise to the most pressing global challenges: helping humans live longer and healthier lives, preparing society for the future of work, and mitigating the effects of climate change.

Advancing exploratory science

We’re exploring the unknown reaches of science, from manipulating single atoms, to creating new materials that don’t exist in the natural world, to exploring how biological systems might help improve man-made technologies.
