ECS was founded in 1902 as an international nonprofit, educational organization concerned with a broad range of phenomena relating to electrochemical and solid-state science and technology. The Electrochemical Society has more than 8,000 scientists and engineers in over 70 countries worldwide who hold individual membership, as well as roughly 100 corporations and laboratories that hold corporate membership. ECS’s objectives are:
* to advance the theory and practice of electrochemistry, solid-state science, and allied subjects;
* to encourage research and dissemination of knowledge in these fields; and
* to assure the availability of adequate training and education of fundamental and applied scientists and engineers in these fields.
