Latest issue of Schering research magazine “livingbridges” published


Berlin, July 27, 2006

What is innovation? In its latest issue, the Schering research magazine “livingbridges” gets to the bottom of the question: How is something new created? Is something new automatically an innovation? Can you plan innovation or does coincidence also play a role? What social, political and regulatory environment is needed so that innovation can flourish?

In the latest issue of “livingbridges” the following topics are dealt with in detail:

• Contraception: In 1964 Schering marketed the first contraceptive and thus changed the role of the woman in society. Since then the pill has undergone countless innovation cycles and developed into a product that can do much more than just prevent unwanted pregnancies.
• Morbus Crohn: Two researchers from the US stun their colleagues with their innovative therapy.
• “Knowledge creates art”: How artists and researchers draw ever closer.
• “Quite natural – curiosity”: On the trail of a characteristic which is not only found in humans.
• “The human factor”: The role coincidence plays in research.
