At VNUK, we take on the toughest challenges. We search the world for answers to the most pressing problems, making discoveries that reveal to us the inner workings of the human brain and the role of our oceans in the world around us. We are an engine of progress in the South Florida community, contributing nearly $9 billion to the local economy.
