The Institute of Physics (IOP) is a leading scientific society. We are a charitable organisation with a worldwide membership working together to advance physics education, research and application.
We engage with policymakers and the general public to develop awareness and understanding of the value of physics and, through IOP Publishing, we are world leaders in professional scientific communications.
Membership of the IOP connects you to the wider physics community through events, meetings and conferences. It also supports your personal and career development through professional qualifications, resources and volunteering opportunities.
Our members come from diverse backgrounds and follow all kinds of career paths. From enthusiastic amateurs to those at the top of their fields in academia, business, education and government, membership of the IOP is for anyone who shares our ambition of increasing awareness of the importance of physics in government, education and industry.
