2020 Leadership Circle Award Winners

Since 2002, long-term ECS supporters and partners in electrochemistry and solid state science have been recognized through the Leadership Circle Awards. The awards are granted in the anniversary year an institutional member reaches a milestone level. Recipients receive a commemorative plaque and credit in ECS publications. 

ECS gratefully acknowledges the institutional members receiving the 2020 Leadership Circle award. (more…)

Kiana Amini, department of chemical engineering PhD candidate at the University of Waterloo, has some tips on how you can stay scientifically productive during the COVID-19 pandemic. 

In an article published on the University of Waterloo blog, Amini says although most in-person classes, events, and research operations are now remote, which presents its challenges, it also presents many opportunities. (more…)

The National Science Foundation (NSF) has released a memorandum, entitled, “Administrative Relief for Recipients and Applicants of Federal Financial Assistance Directly Impacted by the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) due to Loss of Operations.” According to NSF, the purpose is to implement flexibilities authorized by Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Memorandum M-20-17 from specific administrative, financial management, and audit requirements contained in 2 CFR Part 200, Uniform Administrative Requirements, Cost Principles and Audit Requirements for Federal Awards, without compromising accountability requirements. The document highlights flexibilities that are applicable to NSF proposers and awardees affected by the loss of operational capacity and increased costs due to the COVID-19 crisis. Learn what they are, here. (more…)

Celebrate Earth Day with ECS

Friends,

We are indeed living in a unique and challenging time in human history. Never before, in the modern age, have we faced a pandemic with such a profound, global impact as COVID-19. Although we are still very much in the initial grip of this unprecedented catastrophe, it is vital—perhaps more than ever before—that we recognize and celebrate Earth Day and its 50th anniversary.

Advertise in ECS’s Journals

The ECS community is one-of-a-kind. Researchers, engineers, students, established professionals, and early career researchers in the electrochemical and solid state science and technology, and allied fields rely on the Society as a trusted resource throughout their careers.

From networking events, professional development workshops, biannual meetings, ECS’s journals, and more, The Electrochemical Society is a platform that touches many aspects of our members’ professional lives. (more…)

Since the COVID-19 outbreak began, governments, universities, and businesses have pivoted to remote classrooms and workplaces for everyone’s safety. Out of necessity, students and faculty have rapidly adapted to online teaching and learning to finish the spring term—but recreating the lab experience remotely has been more challenging. Beyond academia, the lockdowns have disrupted researchers in government and industry labs, negatively impacting timelines and objectives. At the same time, the challenges that the solid state and electrochemical sciences are tackling have not gone away, leading to more stress and frustration. (more…)

Last November, ECS Executive Director and CEO Christopher Jannuzzi and ECS Director of Community Engagement Shannon Reed attended the Chemical Sciences Roundtable (CSR) Electrochemistry Workshop in Washington, DC, which focused on the Advances, Challenges, and Long-Term Opportunities in Electrochemistry: Addressing Societal Needs.

The event, hosted by NAS and NSF, explored how electrochemistry can transform technologies related to various applications. The focus was on the instrumentation, education, and other needs required to advance the electrochemical field. (more…)
