Merk KGaA is a pioneer in looking at the impact curiosity can have on innovation. Their website states, “At Merck KGaA, Darmstadt, Germany, we also see ourselves as belonging to the curious species – and have done since 1668. As a vibrant science and technology company, we promote a culture of being passionate about discovery; this is our contribution to shaping a better future and results in a wide variety of solutions. Some of these change life, some prolong it, while others are found in everyday objects that we couldn’t image life without. From cancer therapies to laboratory technology and liquid crystals in smartphones – Behind all of these solutions is the same driving force: the scientific curiosity of our employees.”
They even have a curiosity test you can take.
