It is natural for a learned society to want to engage with innovation – especially when there is a clear and present issue or problem that chemical engineers have the necessary skills to help to solve.
This is not only the case during a pandemic, it is just as true when it comes to addressing climate change, water supply, improving the nutritional value of food, or considering the sustainability of a particular process.
Of course, we want to help. Members want to engage, and employees want to support those members to make sure collectively we get the best possible outcome.
To make it a smooth experience, it is important that the role, remit and the limitations of a professional institution in this process is well understood by all.

Our mission, as set out in Strategy 2024, is to be a vibrant learned society that addresses the grand challenges.
IChemE’s principal technical committee, the Learned Society Committee (LSC), has been tasked with engaging IChemE’s members around delivering this.
LSC has prioritised focussing its initial work on responsible production, major hazard identification and management, and digitalisation. Below are the initial interpretations of these priorities.
