How will science and innovation shape our future and help to address our biggest global challenges from climate change to fighting hunger to curing diseases? Which headlines about these topics are we going to read in thirty or fifty years from now? Join us for a fascinating dialogue with visionary scientists, thought leaders and entrepreneurs – and explore the headlines of the future.

Headlines of the Future is Here

“First COVID vaccine approved in record time” was one of the most recent headlines celebrating a breakthrough in science to fight the pandemic. If we could take a sneak peek at the headlines of 2050, what would we see? What problems will science have already solved? Have we successfully halted or reversed climate change? Will chronic disease still be a concern? Will a doctor’s visit become obsolete as we take control of our health with the help of digital tools? And will the Bio Revolution be a part of everyday language? As a leading life science company in health and nutrition, Bayer is operating at the core of these questions. In our podcast “Headlines of the Future,” we explore how the science and technology of today are paving the way for tomorrow’s innovations and ensuring a better future for all.   

Together with visionary scientists, thought leaders and entrepreneurs, we discuss megatrends such as the Bio Revolution, New Health Awareness, Agriculture and Climate Change, Healthy Aging and Nutrition for a Growing Population. Our guests discuss the potential of science and new technologies and their tremendous impact on improving people’s lives.
