What is YCN?

The Young Ceramic Researchers Network (YCN) is an initiative of the European Ceramic Society (ECerS) sponsored by the JECS Trust. This nonprofit network aims at bringing young students and professionals currently doing research on Ceramics.

Following the ECerS` traditional special care for young ceramists the “student evening” will be held again during the 15th ECerS conference taking place in beautiful city of Budapest. Young ceramist researchers, that is, Master and PhD students including early stage PhD`s are all invited and will have an opportunity to socialize, interact and discuss their work in a warm and festive atmosphere, where short talks about scientist careers are planned for the evening as well. A great opportunity to start professional and/or friendly relationships, to initiate collaborative networks and plan lab visits. This time the students evening will be organized by newly established Young Ceramists Network (YCN), who will present itself and its activities, the Ceramic Social Club, JECS Trust fund and much more.
