HelloScience – Amplifying and Accelerating Sustainability, Collaboration and Innovation

Welcome to HelloScience – Novozymes’ open innovation and collaboration platform. A space for entrepreneurs, scientists, civil society, and corporate partners from around the world to connect and catalyze a more sustainable future.  HelloScience ® is an initiative established and founded by Novozymes in 2017 to address the world’s key challenges outlined by the UN Sustainable Development Goals.


Enabling Conversations and Collaboration

Collaborating by Contributing

The HelloScience platform aims to enable mutually beneficial and rewarding partnerships through its stakeholder ecosystem.  Its online presence lets you find, connect and engage people, organizations and startups who have the necessary skills, experience, and networks.

For true collaboration and impact, it is essential to bridge cross cutting ideas with system thinking. We encourage everyone to contribute and engage actively in the ecosystem from day one, as we believe by sharing insights, contacts and information together, we increase the likelihood of helping each of us succeed.


Business and SDG Impact

Story behind HelloScience

HelloScience is a collaborative incubation platform that catalyzes and scales solutions across the world, in three key steps:

1) Discovering: Inviting people to submit ideas and solutions to key challenges, and sharing thought leadership across the ecosystem.

2) Collaborating: Facilitating online and/or physical activities to engage with potential partners and collaborators.

3) Growing: Supporting and championing selected projects to accelerate their growth and impact.

HelloScience is an innovation platform that encourages and supports collaboration with a sustainability edge.

HelloScience was founded by Novozymes in 2017. The platform and the day-to-day operations are managed on behalf of Novozymes by Thirdroom ApS.

Home Page

This is an example page. It’s different from a blog post because it will stay in one place and will show up in your site navigation (in most themes). Most people start with an About page that introduces them to potential site visitors. It might say something like this:

Hi there! I’m a bike messenger by day, aspiring actor by night, and this is my website. I live in Los Angeles, have a great dog named Jack, and I like piña coladas. (And gettin’ caught in the rain.)

…or something like this:

The XYZ Doohickey Company was founded in 1971, and has been providing quality doohickeys to the public ever since. Located in Gotham City, XYZ employs over 2,000 people and does all kinds of awesome things for the Gotham community.
