Who is Friends for? Friends is open to anyone who wishes to join and is specifically designed for those who would enjoy attending events at Imperial College London. Equally, Friends is for people who have an interest in what is going on at Imperial and who wish to be kept in touch through regular updates and events. Our programme of events are for the non-scientist and those with a scientific background alike. It is intended for enquiring minds. Many Friends, whether they are members of the public, local residents, alumni of the College, parents of current students, or benefactors see Membership as a highly attractive way of keeping abreast of science and its impact on our lives and society. Others see Membership as a means of supporting the life and work of Imperial College London.
