Accelerating science-based solutions
Science Unlimited 2019 illustrated the real state of the world today (hint: much better than you probably think) and showcased inspiring research making tomorrow even better. This inspiring day of talks formed part of the Frontiers Forum 2019 – an exclusive annual event bringing together the world’s leading scientists and other thought leaders to discuss and accelerate science-based solutions.

Claire Kremen believes protected areas are not enough to preserve our planet’s species and habitats. She showed a complementary approach that helps save biodiversity in the spaces people share with nature.
Matthew McCabe collects high-resolution data from drones and shoe-box satellites. He demonstrated how this advanced aerial imaging, combined with machine learning, is fueling a digital transformation in agriculture.
Anne Bowser is helping to launch the world’s largest coordinated citizen science campaign. She described how millions of people will collect and share data on air and water quality, biodiversity, climate change and health.
Several paraplegics can now walk again thanks to Grégoire Courtine’s wireless implants. He illustrated the technology behind this breakthrough, plus the next steps to develop commonly available treatments.
Frontiers leading Open Science
Daniel Petrariu talked about how the Frontiers Open Science platform enables its award-winning, rigorous peer review process while providing maximum data insights, and how AIRA (our Artificial Intelligence Review Assistant) supports editors and staff in making the best decisions throughout the process.
