Our communities

Whether you're looking for like-minded individuals in your technical field, support in your career or networking with local members, our communities will make you welcome

Over 150 years, the evolution of IOM3 has brought together a wide range of disciplines and communities. 

We include specialisms covering the breadth of interest sectors, from mining to nanotechnology, biomaterials to packaging and more. If you’re looking for networking in your specialist subject area, check out our Technical Communities.

We also have a number of groups within IOM3 focussed on supporting members in specific ways - providing networks for people in the early stages of their career and for under-represented groups within our profession.

IOM3 has affiliated local societies in the UK and a number of international partnerships, providing local networks for members globally. We also have a strong community of volunteers who contribute to our activities, from governance and peer review activities to involvement in event organisation.

Whatever your experience, background or needs, we have a community where you will be made welcome.
