The Society’s mission is threefold:
To bring together researchers from different fields and geographical regions through the organization of conferences, the publication and circulation of technical papers, to coordinate the promotion of sol-gel science and technology in the scientific and industrial communities, and to provide education and training in the field of sol-gel science and technology.
Join now the International Sol-Gel Society and be an active participant in the exciting area of new materials.
The International Sol-Gel Society gathers in its network about 1600 specialists in the sol-gel area from around the world. An increasing number, today more than 250, of researchers and engineers are members of ISGS and take part in the development of the Society.
Since 2003 the ISGS promotes knowledge exchange, shares know-how and tries to increase the dialogue between academia and industry in the field of sol-gel. The instrumentation for this goal are this website, the Journal of Sol-Gel Science and Technology, and the organization of conferences. Publications, newsletter, book reviews, advertisement of job offers, prizes and awards are other means to encourage education and to support young researchers.
Members use to meet regularly at International Sol-Gel Conferences (biennial meeting taking place each time in a different country) or at ISGS SummerSchools to share their latest results, scientific innovations and industrial applications. These events favor the report on the state-of-the-art in all the concerned fields. But they are also interesting opportunities to develop new synergies and partnerships.
After 10 years of existing and growth (evidence of its recognition), the board of the ISGS wishes to open up the society and to welcome more widely active partners in settling a partner membership.
Become an ISGS partner member is a way to play a part in the development of research in the vast sol-gel field and to benefit of a large range of practical advantages.
