About us

Our Purpose

To inspire people to think differently about innovation and put science & technology to work for people & the environment


Science and technology are among the most powerful tools we have to help with some of the world’s most pressing problems. New techniques such as nanotechnology, gene editing, 3d Printing, robotics, artificial intelligence and others promise dramatic changes in many areas – from medicines and materials to energy and agriculture.

But these disruptions will also bring new challenges and responsibilities; difficult trade offs; new ethical issues, impacts and uncertainties. These breakthroughs could be used to give us innovations which are empowering and transformational, or give us more of what got us in this mess in the first place.

Albert Einstein observed “No problem can be solved with the same kind of thinking that created it”.

Join us to create new thinking to help the world innovate better.  We want people to take a new look at the way they do research and innovation; create new systems and new ways of working which focus human ingenuity on the right solutions to our biggest challenges without, this time, causing more problems than we solve.
