Electroceramics Technologies

The Electroceramics Network is an initiative of the European Ceramic Society, under the umbrella of its R&D working group, which aims at building a network of young scientists and professionals working in the field of Electroceramics.

Up to now, the network mainly manage the following Technologies - for each technology a contact person will be cited (coming soon):
