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. 

The committee has identified three priority topics to concentrate IChemE’s activities on as a learned society through to 2024, and the completion of the term of the current strategy:

  1. Responsible Production: IChemE aims to deliver tangible outputs on several aspects of sustainability and responsible production, including climate change, ethics, systems engineering and life cycle analysis. In the short term, the Responsible Production work influences the work IChemE is involved with to deal with the COVID-19 pandemic.

  2. Major Hazard Management: The ambition is for IChemE to be a peer group leader in sharing our knowledge in this area, and learning from others.

  3. Digitalisation: IChemE will provide thought leadership on how digital technologies and skill areas, enabled by ethical leadership, organisational aspects, education and life-long learning, affect chemical engineering professionals, and help them prepare for the future.

The Learned Society Committee is chaired by the Vice President Learned Society and comprises up to 12 volunteer members. View our volunteer group structure.
