Take a look at how the goal of a sustainable future guides our research and our internal organization.

Can technology improve our lives? We believe it can. The true question is: how do we make sure that it does? And how do we know that we take the right actions? That benefit everyone.

One part of the answer is: by working together. Our belief in collaboration is even greater than our faith in technology. To ensure that our efforts fit into a worldwide framework that promotes sustainability, we support the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals.

In 2019, we selected the Sustainable Development Goals on which we primarily though not exlusively – focus our research, because we believe nano- and digital technology can greatly speed up their progress.
