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.
