IOM3 end of year review for 2023

As we come to the end of another busy year, IOM3 shares highlights of 2023 in our end of year review focused on the activities of the Institute.

Our President, Kate Thornton CEng CSci FIMMM, looking back over 2023, says ‘this year has been a testament to the resilience, innovation and collaborative spirit that defines our Institute and its members’.

The Institute’s Chief Executive, Dr Colin Church CEnv FIMMM states: ‘the expertise of IOM3 members has never been more important to society and economy, and making sure that expertise is fed into the public and policy debates is a key aim of ours. Our work on influence in 2023 includes significant effort on the topic of critical raw materials’. Among other highlights, he goes on to say that ‘membership recruitment has continued to be a positive story for us. For the second year in a row, we have recruited over 2,000 new members’.

Other highlights for IOM3 in 2023 include:

  • 39 different events organised, with over 4,700 registrations from 53 countries
  • Hosting several international conferences, including the IRCO RubberCon 2023, the World Titanium Conference and the 11th International Symposium on Ground Freezing
  • Over a million article downloads across our journals
  • A significant increase in interest in our professional awards with 147 nominations across 38 categories
