On 28 March 2002 the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh honoured NRI by a Royal visit. There was an opportunity for the Royal party to meet with NRI scientists and students in the Ward Room of the Pembroke building on the Medway Campus of the University of Greenwich.
The Royal visit was arranged to coincide with the inauguration of Universities at Medway in which the Universities of Greenwich and Kent will combine to provide increased higher education opportunities by working together on the Medway Campus. In addition the Medway Children's University were also involved in the visit.
The visit was a tremendous success and enabled everyone partaking to have an opportunity to be presented to either the Queen or Duke of Edinburgh. It was a wonderful opportunity for the scientists and students of NRI to have the opportunity to promote their work in such a high profile way. The Institute also took the opportunity to invite a number of colleagues from other institutions and Government Departments to join them in what was a tremendous day of celebration for the work of NRI.
