With the beginning of the month October, the fifth newsletter of the year 2017 was sent out by the European Ceramic Society (ECerS). The special feature of the newsletter is that this newsletter was not only broadcast for the first time by the new ECerS President Moritz von Witzleben, but also contained important information on the topic JECS-Trust.
In the following paragraph a short overview is given: 14 applications have been submitted to the JECS-trust by the deadline of 31st May 2017: 4 for General activities (conferences, workshops, summer-schools, etc.) and 11 for Mobility. After discussion, the board decided to approve 12 proposals and to reject 2. Next deadline for application is 30th November 2017.
