Institutions are professional bodies which operate within a chosen industry. They provide facilities and services to the industry at large: sharing information, and allowing individuals from separate organisations to connect, and to collaborate on work that will achieve shared objectives.

The role of an institution will vary from one organisation to another, though various industry contacts are accessible via Each institution will provide some level of collective representation for both the personnel, and the businesses, operating within a specific industry or profession.

Some of these organizations will play an active role in protecting the employment rights of the individual. Others will represent the industry at large, either in a commercial or a legal capacity. Many institutions are established in order to engage in legal and political matters, and lobby for support towards a shared set of business objectives. This role can be especially significant within heavy industry and manufacturing processes, or any other area of commerce that has environment, scientific, or geopolitical considerations. Other institutions may be established to provide some level of self-regulation within the industry. The most successful organizations and federations of business can hold significant influence.

Associations and institutes can also be valuable centres of learning, where the dissemination of expertise and ideas within a field can lead to industry-wide progress. Institutes offer a valuable forum for technological developments: where separate bodies or companies can co-operate and pool resources and knowledge. Within manufacturing and business - as well as science and technology - joint-funded institutes for learning and research can be used as an arena where otherwise-competing entities will work together to advance the shared goals of the marketplace.

Finding appropriate organisations and federations to connect and to collaborate with means understanding how the goals of the institute match the aims of the individual business.
