About us

The Institute of Physics

The Institute of Physics in Wales is a scientific membership society devoted to promoting physics and bringing physicists together for the benefit of all.

We have over 1000 members, and are a part of the Institute of Physics, a charitable organisation and leading scientific society.

The Institute of Physics in Wales aims to promote the role of physics in society, covering education, health, the environment, and technology.

Our membership is wide-ranging and multidisciplinary, including the education, industrial, medical, and general public sectors. We also seek common purpose with other organisations to promote science and science-based learning and to influence science policy. Special emphasis is placed on supporting physics teachers by promoting in our schools the value, joy and benefits of a knowledge of physics and its applications.

We are proud to be a part of the Institute’s first fundraising campaign, Opportunity physics.
