What is Loimu?

Become a member!

Loimu already has some 15,000 expert members, including natural scientists, environmental scientists and forest scientists. Our members work for industry and for-profit businesses as well as universities, research institutes and the public sector. We protect the interests of our members across all sectors.

You can join Loimu if you have an academic degree in the natural sciences, agriculture or forestry, or if you are currently studying for one. Loimu offers you a natural alternative.

  • You can become a student member as soon as you begin your university studies. When you graduate, you must notify the union personally. We do not receive this information automatically. You will become a full member of the union upon graduation.
  • You can join the union as a full member if you have completed a M.Sc. or corresponding degree in the natural sciences. Postgraduate students and students working toward their second university degrees are also considered full members.
  • The Union Board can also exercise its discretion and award full member status to a person who does not fulfil these requirements, provided that the person’s tasks fall within the sector represented by full members.
  • Membership application forms can be accessed via the links in the top menu and the navigation bar on the left.
