The future of the UK’s Royal Institution is still uncertain as a special general meeting has been announced to vote on a proposal to replace the entire board of trustees.
The crisis emerged in January this year when Royal Institution’s former director Susan Greenfield was ousted.
Susan Greenfield has started a legal action against the move, claiming she was a victim of sexual discrimination. The legal proceedings could cost the Royal institution as much as £500,000 in damages.
Now, her supporters want her to be reinstated.
Royal Institution has been facing financial crisis since it spent £22 million on renovating its Mayfair premises in 2008 under the directions of Susan Greenfield.
However, Susan Greenfield was seen as a source of inspiration for young people in search of something thrilling to do with their lives.
A spokesperson has confirmed that special general meeting will take place on April 12.
