The European Ceramic Society (ECerS) is a non-governmental, non-profit federation of national ceramic societies each representing the ceramists of a member country.

The ECerS (see Statutes) was established in 1987 in order to co-ordinate and promote the study of ceramics and in particular:

  • To encourage education, training and research.
  • To consult with and bring together individuals and representatives of members, research establishments, academic bodies and institutions of governments and other bodies including the Commission of the European Community.
  • To collect, disseminate and exchange information with other organizations
  • To promote planning, promotion and organization of conferences and meetings
  • To procure planning, printing, publication and circulation of technical papers,

Every two years the ECerS organizes a general Conference in one of the member countries.
