About 'Ri Patrons present'

'Ri Patrons present' events explore the intersection of science, culture, innovation and society with leading thinkers and decision makers. These events are supported by Ri Patrons, a group of philanthropically motivated individuals that help to ensure that people of all backgrounds can build a lifelong interaction with science.

As acknowledgement for their ongoing support, Ri Patrons have access to speakers' drinks receptions after each event, and additional event content such as expanded Q&As, hands-on activities and demonstrations, and the opportunity to explore other cultural institutions in London with exclusive tours.
