Therapeutic innovation and the potential of artificial intelligence
For several years, medical research has been profoundly transformed by the emergence of artificial intelligence (AI). This technology makes it possible to speed up certain stages of the R&D process, which means we are able to develop medicines faster and open the way to more tailored treatments, in particular online, as reflected in our ambition to become a Digital Performer.
Our 2021/2022 financial results are in line with our 2025 trajectory and put us on the right track to fulfill our ambitions for 2030. The increased volume of sales throughout the world reflects our drive to make ever-more medicines available to the patients who need them. Our independence, underpinned by being governed by a non-profit Foundation, enables us to finance growth as we are free to reinvest all our profits to develop our business.
