The Royal Society

If you need to report any of our employees unwell and affected by Covid-19 please call and leave a message on 020 7 451 2212 and one of our team will call you back. Please only use this number for these purposes.

For any other enquiries, please see the Contact us page to find the relevant department.

Following careful consideration of the current course of the Coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic, the Royal Society has made the decision to implement a closure of our buildings to Fellows, staff, conferencing clients and other visitors. They will remain closed until further notice.

We have taken this decision in the interests of our Fellows, staff, conferencing clients and other visitors.  

Although our buildings will close, the business of the Royal Society will continue with staff working remotely, wherever possible. Information will continue to be posted on our website including for Fellows, Grant Holders, and Grant Applicants.

Our 2020 programme of meetings and events is cancelled or postponed, including the 2020 Summer Science Exhibition. 

In the meantime, our thoughts go out to all those whose health is impacted here in the UK and around the world. 

Fellows of the Royal Society and people that we fund are contributing to the UK and global effort to tackle Coronavirus COVID-19.
