|The Institute of Physics will start a fundraising campaign Opportunity Physics which aims to raise £10m over 5 years. The money will be used to continue and extend the activities of the Institute both in the UK and abroad.|
The official launch of the campaign, will be hosted by Professor Brian Cox and IOP president Professor Sir Peter Knight, on Monday 23 September 2013.
Why raise funds?
At the point where increased funding is needed to scale up our work, there are uncertainties about the sustainability of our main revenue stream which has come from IOP Publishing. It is prudent to plan for the change in funding landscape by raising funds now.
The campaign aims
In short there are four areas the IOP wants to focus on; discovery, society, economy and education.
