● Needham Research Institute (NRI)

THE NEEDHAM RESEARCH INSTITUTE is the home of the Science and Civilisation in China Project, and houses the East Asian History of Science Library. As a recognised global centre of study, the NRI offers a unique collection of books and other published materials on the history of science, technology and medicine in East Asia, and welcomes scholars from all over the world.

THE NEEDHAM RESEARCH INSTITUTE, formerly the East Asian History of Science Trust, exists legally as a registered charity governed by a body of Trustees, who appoint the Director. The Trustees are drawn from a variety of backgrounds, including the University of Cambridge, business, and those with broad experience of China and East Asia generally. The chairman of the Trustees is Professor Martin Jones, who took office on the retirement of Sir John Boyd, KCMG in 2016. The Trust owns the buildings and other property of the Institute, and administers its endowment through a Bursar. All enquiries relating to the Trust should be made through the Institute Administrator, Susan Bennett, who is also Secretary to the Trustees.
