Policy

The IOP Policy Centre provides an active and authoritative voice for physics. We work in all areas that affect physics, from schools education through to research and innovation, and supply timely, evidence-based, scientific advice and in-depth analyses to governments and other agencies. We work with the Scottish Government and other policy makers to provide support in devolved policy decisions around education, healthcare, economy and infrastructure.

The IOP's membership is a unique source of expertise, which informs all of our policy activities and all policy statements and positions are agreed by Council. We draw on the expertise of our IOP Scotland committee, Scottish education committee and our members in Scotland to provide Scottish focussed policy advice.

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.
