Policy

Policy

The Institute of Physics (IOP) in Scotland aims to influence government policy and decisions in Scotland, regarding the funding of scientific research, physics education at all levels, the public perception of physics, and regarding physics in industry.

To this end, members of the Institute of Physics in Scotland Committee sit on influential committees and advisory boards where possible.

The committee is keen to ensure that the views of the members are well represented and so would be delighted to hear from anyone who would be interested in giving feedback on drafts being prepared. If you would like to be kept on an email listing for this purpose or just have physics issues which you would like to raise, please contact us.
