Corresponding Societies

The Institute has a long history of collaborating with other organisations to further enhance the knowledge and professional practice of science, technology and engineering, and today has strong links with UK-wide Learned and Professional Societies such as IOM3, the Geological Society of London and the Institution of Civil Engineers, as well as deep historical links with local regional Institutes such as the Cleveland, Midland and Scottish Engineering and Mining Institutes.

The Institute is always seeking to collaborate both locally, nationally and internationally and welcomes any invitations to correspond with other similar organisations.

Further information on becoming a corresponding society of our Institute can be found in our Corresponding Society’s policy document.

Becoming a corresponding society not only involves the sharing and promotion of event information, but will also encourage closer collaboration between our Institute and other organisations across a wide range of areas, including:

  • Organising scientific and professional meetings and conferences,
  • Policy and outreach initiatives,
  • Regional and international communication of ideas,
  • Provision of impartial and authoritative advice or information,

Becoming a Corresponding Society of the Institute

Any potential Corresponding Society should share similar Objects to that of the Institute. An application to be a Corresponding Society of the Institute should be made via the Hon. Secretary who can be contacted at

The Aims and Objects of an applicant organisation will be checked, along with its governing document, to check that the applicant organisation would be of mutual benefit to the Institute. The application will then be put to a vote at the Institute’s Council for approval. If the application is accepted the respective Presidents of NEIMME and the applicant organisation will sign an MoU based upon the template in Appendix A of the Corresponding Society’s policy document.
