By supporting the Ri, you will be helping to create a home for science where everyone is welcome, while empowering people to explore and get involved with science.

While the Ri building is situated in the heart of London, our work spans the entire globe thanks to our digital programmes – from our award-winning YouTube channel to our popular series of livestreamed talks.

“Having worked with many of the best science organizations in the world, the Ri shines above them for their high quality science, amazing teaching through their lecture and digital content and their broad science programs.”

Prof. David S. Ricketts, Innovation Fellow, Harvard University, and Ri Patron
