Welcome to SCI

SCI is a unique multi-science and multidisciplinary forum where science meets business.

SCI Themes

SCI promotes Innovation and Education via forums and networks which support the delivery of our charitable aim to advance the commercial application of chemistry related sciences into business.

SCI was established by Royal Charter in 1881, by a prominent group of forward thinking Scientists, Inventors and Business people; with founder members going on to set up major businesses producing many of the daily products we recognise today.

Join SCI today to share and exchange information, ideas, innovations and research. Members have access to a growing network of member specialists from sectors as diverse as food and agrisciences, environment, energy, materials and health and well-being.

Kirtiraj Gaikwad‘I am currently studying for my PhD in food packaging and was awarded an AJ Banks Travel Bursary to attend Innovations in Food Packaging, Shelf Life and Food Safety in Munich, Germany. The posters and talks on my current research area - active packaging - at this conference enabled me to gather novel information on innovations in active packaging and speaking to all the key scientists allowed me to discuss and obtain feedback on some of my results. I also presented my work to PhD students in other fields, which helped to gain a better understanding of the relationship between food packaging, shelf life and food safety. I would like to offer my sincerest gratitude to SCI, the travel award selection committee and the SCI staff for their time.’
