Imperial College London

Tackling the problems of the modern world to improve quality of life and economic development are part of Imperial College’s DNA. Finding solutions, sharing discoveries and debating the implications of our work is what we love doing. We are therefore delighted to be co-hosting the Battle of Ideas reception and look forward to welcoming Battle participants and supporters to an evening of feisty conversation and lively discussion.
