Needham Research Institute

The Needham Research Institute[1] or NRI, located on the grounds of Robinson College, in Cambridge, England, is a centre for research into the history of science, technology and medicine in East Asia. It is part of the University of Cambridge. The institute is named after the scientist and historian Joseph Needham, who initiated the Science and Civilisation in China series. The current director is Mei Jianjun, a noted archaeo-metallurgist.

The institute is housed in a purpose-built structure in Robinson College. The building was designed in the Chinese style, and has been described by its architect as "East Anglian Asian".[2]
