The Mining Institute is the Royal Chartered membership organisation for science and technology in the North. Founded in 1852 by the most important contemporary Northern scientists and engineers, by becoming a member you can follow in their footsteps to help shape the future of industrial heritage and cutting-edge science in the North. We hold regular talks and events on all aspects of science and technology and have lots of opportunities for you to get involved further.

The Institute has recently secured Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) support* of £4.7m, including development funding of £600,000.  More information on our plans is available here and a website for the Common Room is now also in place which includes our brochure and latest developments.
