Current partnerships

epslogoThe European Physical Society (EPS) is a non-profit organization whose purpose is to promote physics and physicists in Europe. Formally established in 1968, its membership includes the national physical societies of 41 countries, and some 3200 individual members. The EPS is our strongest partner and also hosts the IAPS headquarters in Mulhouse, France.


IFISO_logo_whitebgThe Informal Forum of International Student Organisations (IFISO) is a platform for pluralistic, “non-political” and not-for-profit international (worldwide, European, etc.) student-run organizations. its membership includes 27 international student organisations

It comprises many national physical societies, some of which sponsor IAPS and its national committees.


The International Physicist’s Tournament (IPT) is an international competition for physics students. It was born in Ukraine in 2009 and takes place every year. From each country a team of 6 students can participate. They get a list of 17 experimental problems which can be solved within about 10 months. At the tournament they have to defend their solutions in special physics fights.


The International Association for the Exchange of Students for Technical Experience (IAESTE A.s.b.l) is an Association of National Committees representing Academic, Industrial and Student interests.
