What is BioCores?

When justifying the importance of investing in science, the phrase “Knowledge is power”, attributed to Francis Bacon, very often comes up. Although the original Latin expression by the British philosopher would have read “ipsa scientia potestas est”, there can be no doubt that knowledge is not only a source of power, but more importantly of progress.

In re-reading Bacon, it becomes clear that knowledge – and not just knowledge of a purely scientific nature – is just as powerful as it is necessary. Knowing which tools, sources and instruments are within my grasp will allow me to work more effectively. The same is true of research, where it is vital to always be aware of cutting-edge innovations and services.
