Embracing Our History

NRI is strongly linked with the UKs colonial past, with historic ties to many government colonial research units and institutes since the 1890’s. We are embracing this history through a number of projects including securing NRI’s historic archive and promoting its use for research on colonial agricultural and natural science.
