The annual Labs to Riches dinner celebrates the Royal Society's support for innovation in science and technology.

Labs to Riches brings together representatives from industry, academia, finance and government at an evening dinner to celebrate the achievements of the UK’s strength in research and innovation.

In 2017 the evening will focus on the role of science in the UK's industrial strategy, and how it can encourage innovation, improve productivity and contribute to economic growth.

During the evening, we will showcase scientists who have experienced working in both industry and academia, and present the first Royal Society Innovation and Translation awards to researchers who are close to commercialising an aspect of their research.
