We are delighted to announce that Merck, a leading science and technology company, is a SES corporate partner this year. Merck seeks to spark scientific curiosity and passion through strategic employee and community engagement efforts, paving the way to a future filled with breakthroughs. The company invests in non-profit organisations through signature and localised partnerships that are focused on either Scientific Research or Science Education. Its SPARK Global Volunteer Programme is designed to inspire Merck employees across the globe to leverage their diverse talents, skills and experience to give back to the communities in which they live and work. Merck’s SPARK team in Dorset recommended Scientific Exploration Society as an ideal charity to support as the Society's aims and objectives align very well with Merck. SES is hugely grateful to Merck for its support.
