Following the UK government’s advice on the COVID-19 pandemic, the Royal Academy of Engineering has closed its London premises, Prince Philip House until further notice. This includes the closure of the Taylor Centre.

Our absolute priority in this difficult period is the welfare of Academy staff, Fellows, Hub Members and other stakeholders and we are fully committed to supporting the UK government’s efforts to limit the spread of the virus. Enterprise Hub Members should be reassured that the Academy will accommodate necessary changes to projects as much as possible.
