We work closely with a number of other organisations. Click on the links to their websites to find out more.
Our relationship with the InstMC is one of our oldest and we have many joint members. Their aims are to serve the public benefit by advancing the science and practice of measurement and control technologies and their various applications. They also aim to foster the exchange of views and the communication of knowledge and ideas in these activities, and to promote the professional development and qualification our members. As a result we try and hold at least one event a year that InstMC members can attend.
The Company have had a long affiliation with the Bridge Ward Club. All the 25 wards in the City have Ward Clubs although some have combined over time. They all started life as a way for local residents to air their views to their elected representative on the City of London Common Council. As the City has become more business focussed and the residents have moved away their function is now a mix of business and social. SIM Hall aka Glaziers’ Hall is located on the very edge of Bridge Ward through its connection with London Bridge. Hence the name of the Club. Do mention your membership of WCSIM if you apply to join the club.
The Foundation for Science and Technology is a UK charity, providing an impartial platform for debate of policy issues that have a science, research, technology or innovation element. Established in 1977, the Foundation brings together Parliamentarians, civil servants, industrialists, researchers, learned societies, charities and others. We had aimed to have a joint conference style event mid 2020 but this was postponed due to the COVID situation. We hope that this can be reinstated later in 2021.
Our relationship with the Institute of Physics and Engineering in Medicine (IPEM) is a new one and it is hoped that by sharing events and interests that both organisations can grow and develop. The first initiative of this partnership in 2020 was to launch an essay competition for younger members of both organisations.
IPEM is the Learned Society and professional organisation for physicists, clinical and biomedical engineers and technologists working in medicine and biology. Their mission is to improve health through physics and engineering in medicine.
WCSIM sponsors four Arkwright Scholars per year through the Smallpeice Trust for two years. We also invite those Scholars to become Livery Apprentices. The Arkwright Scholarships Trust is an independent UK-wide charity that identifies, inspires and nurtures the country’s future leaders in engineering and technical design. It does this by awarding Scholarships through rigorous selection to outstanding technology-minded school students.
GAMBICA is the national organisation representing the interests of companies in the instrumentation, control, automation and laboratory technology industry in the UK.
