    back-to-back infinitive phrases

    Can you suggest a better way to handle the back-to-back infinitive phrases at the end of this statement?

    Drive innovation in biodiversity, computational, and data science to accelerate scientific discovery to anticipate and address societal challenges.

    Re: back-to-back infinitive phrases

    Are "biodiversity," "computational" and "data" three different types of "science"?

    Is "scientific discovery" supposed to be the thing that anticipates and addresses societal challenges?
