Information for members during COVID-19

This is an online ‘hub’ for members signposting to advice and support throughout this period. If you have ideas for more ways in which we can support you, please do let us know.

The IOP at Caledonian Road, London

In response to the removal of restrictions, we reopened 37 Caledonian Road and restarted in-person events and meetings. There are still guidelines for such visits.

But we are continuing to run our online programme of events and talks, so please do keep visiting our website for full event details and to register. These sessions are for the whole physics community, not just IOP members.

As we move into the next phase of the pandemic, the following links are designed to offer you continued support.
