Great Scientists are one of the types of Great People in Civilization VI. They have a variety of possible effects, but many are focused on the triggering of tech boosts or otherwise speeding scientific advancement. These tech boosts will not stack with the ones earned from normal play. This means, for example, that a player cannot get one boost on a tech from a Great Scientist for 50% its cost and then boost it with its normally available game trigger to complete it.
