Global partnerships

Our scientific resources are a global asset but the greatest benefits to science and society come when we form cross-disciplinary partnerships.

Finding solutions to urgent global challenges requires a global collaborative effort.

That’s why we actively seek new partnerships with professionals across a range of disciplines and sectors around the world, spanning science, the arts and humanities, charity, governmental and commercial.

We work with around 400 institutions worldwide, in over 100 countries.
