Mining the Past, Forging the Future...

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. Find out more about the benefits of membership and become a member today!

The Institute is pleased to announce this joint conference with the Institute of Corrosion held over two-days between the 22nd-23rd of June 2023. The corrosion control industry has a large part to play in developing sustainable solutions for the energy sector. It can design systems and procedures that provide corrosion control for the life of the asset, but too often cost becomes the driver in reducing performance from concept to construction. This event will present, debate and challenge current engineering solutions to meet the new challenges facing the industry, including how we can continue providing energy, what can be re-purposed, and the effects on sustainable corrosion control solutions. This will also allow participants to understand the value chain, from concept to end use, and the challenges of various players in the energy sector.

Registration is required for attendance. The full programme is given below and is available via the conference website.

Professional and Academic Events


The Institute fulfils its Royal Charter by organising events on the cutting edge of science and technology - not just mining and mechanical engineering - we organise a range of events across the natural and physical sciences which are open to our members and the public.

Our NEIMME Lectures showcase the latest in academic and professional achievements, we have a number of Joint Events with other Learned and Professional Societies and Institutes across the British Isles and our Younger Members Group oversee our events programme for Early Career Professionals and Researchers.

We offer a range of professional development opportunities exclusively to our members who also receive information and access to all our non-public events as well. To find out more about the benefits of membership of the Institute see our Membership Page
