The Royal Institution is proud to back the AllTrials campaign. The Ri has been encouraging people to think further about science and its applications for over 200 years and we remain true to our founding principle of promoting “The speedy and general diffusion of the knowledge of all new and useful improvements in whatever quarter of the world they may originate”. Encouraging people to participate in informed discussions about science is just as important today and so we fully support the AllTrials call for greater transparency around clinical trials. We believe it is vital to open up the world of science and technology, thus providing a platform for the public not just to gain access to credible information, but to genuinely involve them in discovery, innovation and discussions about our collective future.
