Working together

Working Together Hero Image

Working together, we can create a smart green future for all.

We know our science can only make a difference if it is applied outside the lab. We also know that two heads are better than one, and using our knowledge in partnership with others is the best way of creating a smart green future that benefits everyone.

We work with our customers and partners to understand what they need from our science and how best to deliver the answers. We build the right team from our own staff and using the expertise of our global science network to make sure our research considers every angle. We want to find the best way to answer our customers’ complex questions, whether that’s by providing a R&D service, applying for competitive funding or government grants, creating industry-wide collaborations or accessing our internal investment and technology development pipeline.
