NBIC showcased in Big Ben: An Icon of Democracy and Leadership – an official publication for the History of Parliament Trust

We’re pleased to share that NBIC feature as a key player in the UK research and innovation sector, in a new limited-edition publication entitled Big Ben: An Icon of Democracy and Leadership.

The History of Parliament Trust – one of the most ambitious and authoritative academic projects in British history – unveiled the publication at the Palace of Westminster on 1 February 2023.

The beautifully designed, 240-page hardback book was authored by a select team of academics and industry experts. Produced in partnership by the History of Parliament Trust and publisher St James’s House, the publication explores the origins and history of Big Ben and the Palace of Westminster, and celebrates the 180th anniversary and renovation of the famous clock tower as a global symbol of British democracy and leadership. The book also highlights examples of achievement and progress across the social, cultural, political, technological and commercial spheres, and offers an insight into the major UK government departments.

Richard Freed, Founder of St James’s House, said,

“We’re honoured to be launching this wonderful book in the Palace of Westminster, within the shadow of the newly renovated Big Ben – one of the world’s most iconic structures”.
