As we look ahead to 2023, IOM3 shares its highlights of 2022 in our end of year review focused on the activities of the Institute.


As our President, Neil Glover FREng CEng FIMMM looks back over 2022, he says, ‘Thanks to the commitment of our staff, hard-working volunteers and members we have been able to continue to adapt to our changing world and deliver on many of our strategic priorities supporting professionals in materials, minerals and mining to play their part in the transition to a more sustainable, net-zero society.’

IOM3 CEO Dr Colin Church CEnv FIMMM also reflected, ‘As the cost of living crisis continues to bite, it will be more important than ever that IOM3 supports its members in their professional journeys and helps them overcome the barriers and stumbling blocks that may occur.’
