About Richie

At Urenco, we are committed to promoting and advancing the fields of science, technology, engineering, and maths (STEM), to improve the world. That's why we started the Richie education programme, to inspire and educate young people about STEM and to nurture the next generation of scientists and engineers.

From hosting our annual Richie Lecture to offering hands-on science workshops for students globally, we provide engaging and enriching opportunities for young people to explore the possibilities of STEM.
