The Scottish Plastics and Rubber Association supports the manufacture, processing and application of polymers. The Mining Institute of Scotland has interests in mining, petroleum engineering and geotechnical engineering.

The Association is a member of the EngineeringScotland. A full programme of meetings organised by professional engineering and technology institutions in Central Scotland is provided on its web site.
