On its campus, Novartis is playing the card of openness

When you arrive along the Rhine, near Novartis headquarters in Basel, you come across gates and cameras. The main entrance, a black room in a concrete mixing area, is reminiscent of a former customs office in East Germany. It hides a row of trees and an alley. Fabrikstrasse has been around for decades and owes its name to the site’s industrial past.

The path leads to a place where the past meets the present. A land of contrasts where old working methods give way to horizontal structures. Where the financial power of one of the largest pharmaceutical companies in the world is articulated with a start-up spirit. Where scientific prowess is accompanied by scandals and where, behind gates, we play the card of openness.
