Why innovation is so important to us

We want to improve human and animal health – this is what drives us. In pursuit of this goal, Boehringer Ingelheim has worked to develop innovative medications and therapies for patients for over 130 years.

Innovators are a valuable resource to our company, since they make our success with products and innovations possible. We foster a diverse, collaborative and open environment that attracts people who are leaders in their fields, and we create conditions for successful work.

We conduct research with a focus on areas of unmet medical needs. Every day, our scientists chart new territory, continuing our commitment to innovation that has created exceptional medicines that have already changed the lives of millions of patients. Our curiosity, creativity, and passion for science lead us to take the paths scientifically less traveled and give us the courage to deal with setbacks as we pursue our search for the next breakthrough that will transform the lives of patients now and in generations to come.

We choose to embrace the power of partnership and diversity of minds across the life-science community to realize even more scientific opportunities. By working together, we can learn more, do more, and achieve more. Together we can – and will – accelerate the delivery of the next first-in-class therapies to patients in need.

Patients matter. Science matters. Urgency matters. The more than 51,000 employees of Boehringer Ingelheim are success-oriented and approach their work with integrity. Our goal is clear: to provide more health and improve the lives of both humans and animals.
