London: Science City 2021

Science City 1550 - 1800: The Linbury Gallerytells the story of how London grew to become a global hub for scientific and technological innovation, but where does it stand in 2021?  

In collaboration with The Royal Society, the Science Museum assembled a panel of experts to examine that question in a free virtual event. Together they explored how London’s role as a “Science City” has evolved to adapt to a world in which global collaboration is so much more prevalent than in the days of the likes of Newton, Hooke and Wren. 

The panel also lookedto identify some of the challenges and opportunities presented by such seismic issues as Brexit, a green recovery from the pandemic and advances in Artificial Intelligence and engineering.
