Call for candidates to renew the ISGS Board of directors - 3 positions to renew 2024

Representing the sol-gel community as a member of the ISGS Board is an opportunity to support our community, and to ensure that its challenges continue to be addressed. Members of the ISGS Board are elected for a period of six years, with three members retiring at each biennial International Sol-Gel Conference and three new members being elected. This ensures that each Board maintains a core of experienced members, together with newer members to contribute new ideas. It is also important that membership of the Board embeds a strong focus on gender equity, diversity and inclusion. Accordingly, we strongly encourage applications from women, together with sol-gel practitioners from all countries and academic/commercial sectors, to reflect the diversity of our community.
