With our strategy we want to connect and advance Health Sciences by putting our customers, partners, and employees in the center of everything we do, more than ever. We want to better understand their mission, their purpose, and their needs in order to create products or services that inspire. The figurative mark in our logo is a spark made of small ribbons that reflects both future orientation as well as our ambition to connect. The spark stands for the passion with which every project, every job, and every publication starts. Find out how the publishing house has been evolving during Karger’s 131 years of history
