Wellcome Trust
Battle of Ideas festival champion

We support the Battle of Ideas because they share our aim to encourage people to consider and question the key issues raised by research into health and the human condition. We look forward to another spirited weekend of thought-provoking discussion and debate!

Dr Jeremy Farrar, Director of the Wellcome Trust

Julian Baggini, author, Welcome to Everytown: A Journey into the English Mind, and The Ego Trick
