Meet the people behind extraordinary discoveries. Like Robert Zatorre, who showed that music affects our reward system in the same way that sex and food do. Or Carl Folke, who pioneered influential environmental concepts such as the ecological footprint. And Carolyn Bertozzi, who opened the doors to immunotherapy for the treatment of cancer with her techniques.

They are creative thinkers, undisputed pioneers and also contenders for Nobel Prizes. Nine international top scientists who have received the Heineken Prizes for 2020 and 2022 will be in the Netherlands at the end of September. The arrival of these great minds gives us the opportunity to organise two mornings full of inspiring mini-lectures together with New Scientist. In it, the laureates give an insight into their work. What challenges did they face? And what do their milestones mean for other researchers and society?
