Many things have changed since ECS was founded in 1902, yet the idea of providing an open forum for the community to discuss electrochemical and solid state science and technology remains the backbone of the Society. However, the way in which we communicate has changed since the establishment of ECS over 100 years ago.
ECS is building a digital go-to source for content in electrochemistry and solid state science, including podcasts, videos, and original online news stories.
Through our various video series’, ECS aims to popularize electrochemical and solid state science with topical videos, along with preserving the past and recognizing the great pillars of electrochemistry.
An ongoing series of interviews with the key figures in electrochemistry and solid state science and technology fields.
Including interviews with:
- John B. Goodenough
- Gordon Moore
- John S. Newman
- Robert P. Frankenthal
- Barry Miller
- Rudolph A. Marcus
- Adam Heller
- M. Stanley Whittingham
- Allen J. Bard
- Esther S. Takeuchi
- Alvin Salkind
- Richard Alkire
- Ralph Brodd
ECS’s membership continues to have a profound impact on the global society. Notable members include Intel co-founder Gordon Moore; Allen Bard, who is regarded as the father of modern electrochemistry; and Esther Takeuchi, who invented the battery that powers pacemakers. Learn why established scientists and students alike value their ECS membership.
Scientists, engineers and industry leaders come from around the world to attend ECS meeting — not to mention exciting networking opportunities and social events.
Science for Solving Society’s Problems
ECS partnered with the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation to leverage the brainpower of the many scientists in electrochemistry and solid state science and technology that regularly attend ECS meetings for improving access to clean water and sanitation in developing countries. Seven participants were awarded grants totaling $360,000!
ECS has been publishing continuously since 1902, and our portfolio contains works by renowned scientists, inventors, and Nobel laureates. Currently, ECS is pursuing its Free the Science initiative, which aims to provide complete open access to our journals.
Free the Science seeks to remove the fees related to publishing and access research, so scientists can share their research with readers around the world, allowing more minds to think about and solve problems.
The Eltech Systems Lectureship in Electrochemistry Endowment Fund was established in the early 1980s and administered by Case Alumni Foundation.
This endowment fund made it possible to bring distinguished electrochemists to Case Western Reserve University for a period of one or two weeks to present a series of lectures.
Each ECS Meeting features a Plenary Talk, highlighting prestigious members of the scientific community and their work.
Electrochemical Energy Summit
The 5th International ECS Electrochemical Energy Summit was designed to foster an exchange between leading policy makers and energy experts about society needs and technological energy solutions.
The ECS Podcast aims to connect the dots between the sciences, our everyday lives, and the sustainability of the planet.
Listen to interviews with some of the most prominent figures in the field on cutting-edge innovations and the future of electrochemistry and solid state science.
Additionally, with assistance from the Chemical Heritage Foundation, ECS has developed an Oral History series. The series brings to life archived audio of pillars of electrochemical and solid state science. Current episodes include:
