Bright Science Awards

Nurturing science and innovation

Studying the challenges ...and delivering solutions

There are many definitions and sub-definitions of what science really means. At DSM it’s about looking at the world we live in, studying the challenges we face…and delivering answers and solutions that benefit people, planet – and of course profit. It’s this belief that underpins the DSM Bright Science Awards.
