IOP membership where you are

All IOP members are linked by their workplace or home address to a nation or branch. These member-led local groups enable members to connect with other members locally and attend events and talks. Members are encouraged to become actively involved with their branch or nation and activities are open to all IOP members.

As well as networking with peers in your nation or region, as an active local member you’ll play an essential role across the UK and Ireland in supporting physics and connecting physicists in national and local communities. Activity organised by nations and branches includes physics-related events such as visits for members, physics talks, member visits and public engagement activities.

National and branch committees are run by supportive and committed members on a voluntary basis, with dedicated support from the IOP staff team.
