Innovations stem from knowledge and creativity – and are developed by clever minds. This is why Bayer actively promotes education and science all around the world. One example is the Bayer Science & Education Foundation’s scholarships and awards, which encourage excellence in research and support talented young people and researchers just starting out in their career as well as top researchers delivering outstanding achievements in their field. The Bayer foundations also support efforts to resolve social issues. For example, the Bayer Cares Foundation focuses on citizens’ projects and resolving issues in the field of social medicine. The foundations share Bayer's ultimate goal – improving people's lives.
