Special interest groups

What are special interest groups?

Special interest groups provide multidisciplinary networks for the exchange of ideas and information, steer IChemE's technical positioning on the challenges facing modern society, and forge links with partners across the scientific and engineering communities. They are volunteer-led, and supported by IChemE's staff executive. Membership is open to all IChemE members, and every IChemE member is entitled to join one special interest group free of charge, as part of their membership package.

What do special interest groups do?

Special interest groups offer a diverse range of activities. They facilitate networking; run low-cost technical events and online webinars; organise site visits; publish newsletters; acknowledge excellence in design and research with awards; and provide support to students.
