Welcome to the
IUCr Associates Programme

By joining the Associates Programme you can be a part of the IUCr. The IUCr is involved in many charitable activities including supporting students to attend meetings around the world, a Visiting Professor scheme and building crystallography capacity in Africa and other parts of the world.

During the International Year of Crystallography and the following five years, the IUCr provided over USD 1.6 million in funding to support the crystallographic community.

This support has been provided in the form of Visiting Professorships, funding for scientific conferences and workshops, journal subscriptions and building crystallography capacity in Africa and other parts of the world. In order to continue to fund these charitable activities, the IUCr developed its Associates Programme. All contributions received via the Associates Programme are used to support these activities.

The IUCr welcomes individuals and companies that wish to join the Associates Programme.
