Result of the November 2021 JECS Trust Call for projects

31 applications have been submitted to the JECS Trust by the deadline of 30th November 2021: 5 for General activities (conferences, workshops, summer-schools, etc.), 22 for Mobility and 4 for ECerS.

After discussion during the JECS Trust board of 8th February 2022, 23 applications were approved and 8 Mobility projects rejected.

Following the decision of the last JECS Trust meeting, all publications arising from the projects accepted have to be submitted first to Open Ceramics. Article Publication Charges (APC) in Open Ceramics will be covered by the JECS Trust for the applicants of accepted Mobility projects.
