Education and Career Development

ECS works with its education committee to provide continuing education and professional development programming to help our students and young professionals develop skills for their current and future careers. ECS provides new topics at each biannual meeting and helps attendees build their professional network.

ECS invites your organization to get involved and support these initiatives through a sponsorship. Below are the sponsorship options for our 2019 biannual meetings. These meetings give you the opportunity to engage with our students and our young professionals while also helping to support these critical ECS programs.

The benefits of these programs include:

  • Brand exposure on the meeting program, app, website, and signage as meeting sponsor
  • Signage with your logo near the event
  • Emails of attendees who participate in the programs
  • Literature display in the session room for company collateral
  • Complimentary meeting registration and exhibit registrations
  • Organization name included as the sponsor in any email regarding the programs
  • Photos taken with the award winners and included in any articles about the award winners (Student poster session only)

Student poster awards

The award is given to the best poster presentations at an ECS biannual meeting; if possible, one award in the field of electrochemical science and technology and the other in the field of solid state science and technology. The awards acknowledge the quality and thoroughness of the candidate’s work, originality, and independence of the candidate’s contributions, significance, and timeliness of research results, and depth of understanding of the research topic and its relationship to the fields of interest to The Electrochemical Society.


ECS mentoring session sponsorship

ECS is offering a mentoring session that offers students and early career researchers an opportunity to join a roundtable with five peers and established ECS members to build contacts, ask questions about career paths and opportunities, and share in stories about professional life. Sponsoring this session will give your company exposure to students and early career researchers who are looking to accelerate their careers
