Promoting the role of Physics in research, education, industry and the community
The AIP is a organisation dedicated to promoting the role of physics in research, education, industry and the community by:
Since it was formed in 1963, evolving from the Australian Branch of the IOP, the AIP has served the needs and interests of professional physicists, and those with an interest in physics. The history of the AIP was presented in the magazine in 2007 & 2008: Part 1, Part 2 & Part 3. (Do you have historical information about the AIP? As there are gaps in some of our records the AIP would be pleased to hear from anyone who may be able to assist, especially for the items listed here.)
The AIP is a Not-for-Profit association run by volunteers and registered with the The Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission. The AIP is made up of central Federal Executive, Australian Branch committees, Physics Group committees, the Australian Physics magazine editors, an Operations Manager, a Communications team, a book-keeper and many amazing volunteers in-between!
The AIP is governed by a constitution, written by the Federal Executive of the AIP.
The AIP has a code of ethics by which its members must, within reason, abide.
The AIP has a code of conduct all members must abide for the safety and equity in our physics community.
The AIP developed its Science Policy as a platform to support the role of Australian Physics in industry, education, research and the community.
The AIP supports universities in providing high-quality education, by offering accreditations of physics courses.
The AIP supports the Australian physics community by standing up for and upholding the rights, values and passion of scientists in Australia and around the world.
