Our mission

We have three objectives

We support engineering education, medical research and the community local to Dyson's HQ in Malmesbury, UK.


The next generation of engineers

Engineers are the world's problem-solvers. To find practical solutions to the challenges of the 21st century, we need more of them. The James Dyson Foundation's primary mission is to inspire young people to pursue a career in engineering.
