Yorkshire Branch

The Yorkshire Branch is one of 11 regional branches in England, and part of a wider network of IOP activity across our Nations including Scotland, Ireland and Wales. It covers both Yorkshire and Humberside, with activity centres based in Huddersfield, Bradford, York, Leeds, Sheffield and Hull.

Our activities

We organise talks, visits and engagement opportunities for members in Yorkshire, and work locally to promote physics, physics education and public understanding of physics. If it’s physics and it’s happening in Yorkshire, then you have come to the right place!

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 us.
