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.

Meet our members:

Jenny MordueJennifer Mordue joined SCI in 1978. After leading the launch of the Scotland group in 2000, Jennifer became its Chair 2000 – 2003. She then became Chair of the Section Support Committee at London headquarters joining as Trustee from 2007 as an elected member of the Board. Jennifer was awarded the Lampitt Medal in 2002 for outstanding services to the Society. ‘I joined SCI towards the start of my academic career. The ability to attend SCI conferences at significantly reduced rates, the ability to network with senior people in industry and the ability to publish in and gain usage of the SCI journal Pest Management Science were all facets of being an SCI member that were essential in my career development. The cross linkage of different disciplines in SCI makes it a unique forum in which to thrive. In my time it has been particularly difficult for women in SET to climb the ladder and reach their potential in senior positions. As the first female Professor of Zoology in the University of Aberdeen’s 500 year history I feel strongly that I wish to support all young people and particularly women members of SCI to reach their true potential in their working life.Being a committee member at any and every level of the Society creates a wealth of opportunities relating to work, career and broadening one’s horizons.’

Member of the Board of Trustees
