The Royal Institution of Great Britain, often shortened in the English language area Royal Institution, is a facility devoted to scientific education and research. On March 7, 1799, the Royal Institution was founded in the Soho Square House of the President of the Royal Society Joseph Banks in London, according to a draft by Sir Benjamin Thompson, Count Rumford. Present were alongside him leading British scientists of the time, among others Sir Joseph Banks, Henry Cavendish and their first President George Finch. The main tasks of the Royal Institution were, firstly, the rapid and effective dissemination of useful inventions and improvements, and, secondly, a broad pedagogical-journalistic exchange of technical knowledge and the application of new and improved methods, equipment and machines for agriculture, handicraft and industry through lectures, publications, guided tours and permanent Exhibitions. A large part of their founding funding and the initiative for their foundation were supported by the Society for Bettering the Condition and Enhancing the Comforts of the Poor, chaired by Thomas Bernard (1750-1818) And Benjamin Thompson. Since its foundation in April 1799, the headquarters is located in a house on Albemarle Street, in the Mayfair district of London. Their royal status was granted in 1800.
