Policy

The IOP Policy Centre provides an active and authoritative voice for physics. We work in all areas that affect physics, from schools education through to research and innovation, and supply timely, evidence-based, scientific advice and in-depth analyses to governments and other agencies.

The IOP's membership is a unique source of expertise, which informs all of our policy activities and all policy statements and positions are agreed by the Council of the Institute.
