Learned Society Committee

The Learned Society Committee will give strategic direction to IChemE’s technical priorities and steer IChemE’s activities as a learned society. Delivering on IChemE’s strategy to be led by members, supporting members and serving society, this newly-created committee will put members in charge of this vitally important area of activity.

The Learned Society Committee is chaired by the Vice President Learned Society and comprises up to 12 volunteer members elected by the Learned Society Forum, which includes representatives of Special Interest Groups, Regional Member Groups, and Chairs of various ‘knowledge’ committees.

The inaugural Learned Society Committee was elected in July 2019 with three co-opted member seats selected during September 2019.

The role for committee members has been developed to outline their responsibilities and duties.
