The European Ceramic Society

JECS Trust

The JECS Trust was formally set up in December 2007 to oversee the expenditure of funds passed on to the European Ceramic Society (ECerS) by the Society’s Journal and by its publisher, Elsevier.

In its allocation of the Trust’s resources, the Board of the Trust aims:

  • to enable the European Ceramic Society to engage in a broad range of activities for the benefit of its membership;
  • to strengthen research and teaching within the subject of ceramics;
  • to maintain and build on the current strong position of the Journals.
