Governance

The Arthur C. Clarke Award is administered by the Serendip Foundation, a non-profit organisation with the mission of promoting both excellence in and the extension of science fiction.

Over the past few years, Serendip has partnered with institutions like  The British Library and The Royal Society, independent publishers Newcon Press, and writing event Alt.Fiction to achieve these goals, with many more collaborations planned for the future.

In 2017 the current members of the governance team are:
