International Early Engines Conference

Announcement Date: May 13, 2017

INDOOR – The inaugural IEEC saw over 80 delegates from the UK, Germany, China and New Zealand, including several NMRS members, travelling to Elsecar in South Yorkshire to hear an extensive programme of papers on the history and developments of early heat engines. The purpose of the conference was to provide a forum for presentation and discussion of new research into heat engines prior to 1812 under the headline theme of “Newcomen & colleagues’ achievements untainted by the smokescreens of Watt”. NMRS was one of the sponsors of this conference proved to be well attended and extremely successful.
