At Springer Nature, we believe that AI will significantly improve the pace and quality of discovery and enable us to better serve our scientific communities. Additionally, AI helps us make our business operations more efficient. In both areas, we put humans and our communities at the centre of our decision making.

Our AI Innovation Framework encourages participation and ensures innovations align with ethical and legal guidelines, avoid duplication, and most importantly, create value for users and customers.

This includes evaluating technologies and approaches to harness the latest technological advances in a customisable, safe and user-friendly way. In addition to the tailored solutions we are building with AI, we are developing a content distribution strategy designed to enable our customers to leverage our content while ensuring that our authors and our organisation retain control over the ultimate use.
