Following the UK government’s advice on the COVID-19 pandemic, the Royal Academy of Engineering will close its London premises, Prince Philip House, to all regular business from 20 March until further notice, including the Fellows’ Room and Taylor Centre.

All Academy meetings will be hosted virtually, and Academy events are being postponed or cancelled until the end of April 2020 unless they can be held online. Events between May and August will be assessed on a case-by-case basis, and we hope to reschedule many.

Our absolute priority in this difficult period is the welfare of Academy staff, Fellows, awardees and other stakeholders. We look forward to welcoming guests back to Prince Philip House later in the year.
