Italy Chapter



The Italy Chapter of The American Ceramic Society serves ACerS members in Torino and Italy for the purpose of promoting the arts and sciences connected with ceramics and glass science and engineering. Events such as workshops, industrial showcases, and seminars are planned to enhance and facilitate the interaction, technical discussions, and potential collaborations between ACerS members in Italy.  These will focus on the development of early career researchers  to present their work to our members, provide publicity for job opportunities, and the establishment of networking collaborations.

The Chapter is headquartered in Torino.


Co-Chairs:  Monica Ferraris and Paolo Colombo

Italy Chapter to Host Conference in May 2019

"The thousand lives of glass" is the theme of a conference co-sponsored by the Italy Chapter of ACerS.  The day-long conference will focus on new glass applications and is dedicated to those companies that operate in the glass industry.  The conference will be an updated version of an initiative which began in 2011 and continued until 2014.  The goal continues to be the quest to get the most innovative ideas on glass usage from laboratories and share that information with companies and anyone who is interested in developing additional uses for glass.
