About

Our ambitious new strategy sets out our vision, mission and strategic priorities for the next five years.

Science and its applications have an enormous impact on us all, but in order to maximise the potential of science for the benefit of social wellbeing, cultural enrichment and economic prosperity, it is crucial to have an environment in which people are inspired to think more deeply about science and its place in our lives.

We are already a world-renowned destination for the public to explore science. Over the next five years, we will build on this to develop a diverse community of individuals who, through a lifelong engagement with us, will be inspired to think more deeply about science and its place in our lives.

There are no other charities, with both national and international reach, that are focused on building such a sustained, deep engagement with science.
