ARC and The Royal Institution announce new partnership

ARC, has today announced a new partnership with The Royal Institution (Ri) – a leading charity connecting people with science in the UK and internationally.  

The partnership will see ARC fund individual Ri Memberships for its own members – providing them with free or discounted tickets to the Ri’s Theatre and livestream talks, early access to digital content and exclusive entry into the CHRISTMAS LECTURES ticket ballot – as well as funding inspirational science demo days held at each ARC campus.  

Over the last two centuries, The Royal Institution in London has been home to ground-breaking science engagement, and innovation. From the discovery of 10 elements in the 19th century to their legendary CHRISTMAS LECTURES, the Ri is a world leader in inspiring future generations of scientists and innovators.

“We are delighted to welcome ARC’s members to share in the benefits of Ri Membership. As Ri Members, they will join a community of like-minded people who love science, or enjoy exploration, or are just curious about the world around them. At the same time, ARC’s generous support will make a big difference to our charitable activities, helping us to connect even more people and families with science, and supporting schools from disadvantaged areas of the UK.”

Katherine Mathieson, Director of The Royal Institution

We’re really excited about our new partnership with The Royal Institution. Our clusters create the best possible environments for innovation to make a difference in the world and I can think of no finer partner to support and inspire our members than The Royal Institution. I grew up watching their CHRISTMAS LECTURES each year and am delighted that ARC is supporting their future.”

Dan Metcalfe Senior Director of Community at ARC

ARC’s network currently consists of four clusters including Harwell Science and Innovation Campus, ARC Oxford, ARC Uxbridge, and ARC West London, home to over 300 leading science and innovation organisations and over 10,000 employees.
