Local Networks

The IET supports over 100 Local Networks that exist in a number of locations around the world.

Local Networks (often referred to as LNs) are groups of members that come together to deliver a series of activities designed to promote the importance of science, engineering and technology to the general public, encourage young people to enter the professions, and provide opportunities for engineers to share and develop knowledge and network with each other.

The IET has five global regions, and there is a communities committee in each region responsible for the activities of the Local Networks. Information on the communities committees and the Local Networks and activities within each region can be found below:

Not a Local Network in your area?

If there isn’t a Local Network within the area where you live or work and you would like to run an activity or set up a Local Network, then please contact the communities committee within one of the regions above.
