About the Research

We ran a project on behalf of the Institute for Learning (IfL) and the Institute of Physics (IoP), exploring how professional bodies take their first steps towards growing their international membership.

How did we carry out the project?

In particular, the research examined:

  • Strategic drivers behind targeting international members
  • Secrets to successful international expansion
  • Problems and pitfalls to look out for along the way

We also conducted in-depth case studies focusing on seven leading professional bodies' experiences of expanding internationally.


What did we find?
