Our Funders

Bangor Science Festival is generously sponsored by the Tom and Raj Parry Jones Endowment Fund. The Fund is dedicated to the memory of Dr Thomas Parry Jones OBE (1935-2013), a Welsh scientist, inventor and entrepreneur, who was responsible for developing and marketing the first electronic breathalyser.
An alumnus and Honorary Fellow of Bangor University, Dr Tom Parry Jones and his wife Raj Parry Jones established the fund in 2002 to encourage young people to develop careers and entrepreneurship in science and technology. The fund supports programmes across the University, including the Bangor Science Festival, and Bangor University is very grateful to Mrs Raj Parry Jones for her continued support.
