The Institute for Mineral and Energy Resources
Answering Global Resource and Energy Challenges
The Institute for Mineral and Energy Resources (IMER) is an award winning interdisciplinary research institute of the University of Adelaide which addresses scientific, technological, environmental and social challenges. IMER's key fields of research are Earth Sciences, Energy Technology and Resource Engineering.
The University of Adelaide is unique within Australia for its strong research and teaching groups in geology and goephysics, petroleum engineering, mining engineering and energy technology, as well as renewable energy and energy efficiency. The Institute works to maximise these core strengths across three Centres:
- Centre for Energy Technology
- South Australian Centre for Geothermal Energy Research
- The Centre for Tectonics, Resources and Exploration
While maximising the core strengths of three substantial University Centres the Institute also supports the development of three complementary Research Programs: Resource Engineering; Socio-Economic Impact of Mineral and Energy Resource Development and Environmental Impact of Mineral and Energy Resource Developments.
The University also houses three Cooperative Research Centres (CRCs) relevant to IMER: The CRC for Greenhouse Gas Technologies; Deep Exploration Technologies CRC; and the Energy Pipelines.
