Where the brightest scientific minds meet
We bring together young researchers and the most eminent in their fields. Those fields are nutrition and optoelectronics: the two areas at the heart of our founder Lord Rank’s interests and businesses.
We support talented researchers with lectures, awards and studentships.
We host symposia unlike any others. Together, we discuss. We debate. We challenge. We spur each other on, and make connections that last.
And with our Prize, we celebrate the breakthrough ideas that emerge, the people behind them, and the difference they make to the world.Learn More
