About Our Client

The Institute of Physics is a leading scientific society. We are a charitable organisation with a worldwide membership of more than 23,000 working together to advance physics education, research and application. We engage with policymakers and the general public to develop awareness and understanding of the value of physics and, through IOP Publishing, we are world leaders in professional scientific communications.

We are a charitable organisation with aspirational goals. Promoting physics and supporting physicists are at the heart of all we do whether it is developing programmes to encourage more students to study physics in our schools, researching the impact of physics on the economy, promoting a code of practice to ensure equal career opportunities for women in physics, or running workshops for physicists from developing countries to help them exploit the benefits of their research. We welcome the talents of people who are not themselves physicists to help us achieve our goals.
