Northern Ireland Regional Groupwww.geolsoc.org.uk/nirg
The Northern Ireland Regional Group was formed in 2014. The Fellowship in Northern Ireland is broadly distributed across the mining industry, engineering consultancies, the universities and the Geological Survey. The objectives of the group are to foster the aims of the Society and to provide professional support and networking opportunities for Fellows, through meetings, field excursions and participation in activities to promote the earth sciences.
Our meetings are open to all. Although the Group is focused on Northern Ireland, we warmly welcome participation from Fellows south of the border and members of other earth science societies, which the Group hopes both to complement and support.
The Group contributes to the Learned Societies and Professional Bodies Forum, which provides advice on scientific issues to the All-Party Assembly Group on Science and Technology.
