The ACerS International United Kingdom (U.K.) Chapter serves ACerS members in London and the United Kingdom 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 the U.K. These events 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 at the University of Sheffield.
