The changing nature of science

The nature of science has changed. It has become more interconnected, interdisciplinary, collaborative and data-intensive. Collaboration has become critical to solving complex problems.

SST creates spaces where scientists are in the driving seat (bottom-up) and ideas can grow through a flexible and open approach. By enabling researchers from academia, industry and the public and private sector to work together in open networks that transcend borders, SST helps to advance science, stimulates knowledge sharing and pools resources.

SST make a real difference by ensuring that research cooperation optimises national investments in research and technology and unlocks thereby the full potential of science.
