We deliver IOP strategy based on, and responding to, local needs and opportunities. We work closely with the Yorkshire and North East Branch committees and attend meetings, events and lectures as part of the annual programme of branch activity.

If you have any questions about the IOP in Yorkshire or the North East, or collaborations and physics-related ideas, you would like to see happening, please don't hesitate to contact Alex.
