The Institute of Inventors and Innovators


Why Join?
There are many good reasons for belonging to the III and then there is yours!
The camaraderie, the networking, the intelligent and continuous help
at your finger-tips from a trusted well-established source
makes being a member of the Institute
simply a sensible decision.

Inventing is a lonely road as it must be,
for who knows more about your idea than you do – but you do not have to be alone.
There are many who have been where you are and who are willing to help.

Who can Join?
Membership of the Institute is open to inventors and innovators, professional business people, non-inventors, corporates, suppliers and service providers … and anyone else interested in the inventive process. We get together regularly to discuss topics of interest to inventors.

Do you have time to volunteer? Would you like to speak to the group?
Do you have some ideas on how to do things better? Let us know!
