Growing Quality Science & Scientists

Sativus Community Library

The Sativus Community Library is where you’ll find the content delivered through our fortnightly newsletter and monthly webinars. The Sativus newsletter was established to give scientists a space to improve their insight. Aha’! moments (also called ‘insight’) happen when your brain isn’t focusing on the problem you’re trying to solve. ‘Aha’ moments lead to scientific breakthroughs.

For the sake of scientific advancement, scientists are encouraged to take a break from their day-to-day tasks and expose their mind to new ideas, concepts and people to stimulate insights.  

These resources are kept up to date and made available through the Community library for access whenever is convenient for you.
