The Institute of Physics (IOP) is the professional body and learned society for physics in the UK and Ireland. We seek to raise public awareness and understanding of physics and support the development of a diverse and inclusive physics community.
We work with a range of partners to support and encourage innovation, growth and productivity in business including addressing significant skills shortages and we provide evidence-based advice and support to governments across the UK and in Ireland.
Our members come from across the physics and engineering communities whether in industry, academia, the classroom, technician roles or in training programmes as an apprentice or a student. We actively support our members to gain professional registration through the range of professional registrations we offer: RSciTech, EngTech, RSci, IEng, CEng and CPhys.
