    JÁN DUSZA, Slovakia

    Born in 1952, Ján Dusza is currently full Professor and head of the division of the Institute of materials research and Head of the Research Centre for Advanced Materials and Technologies, PROMATECH, SAS in Slovakia.
    He received his master's degree at ELTE University in Budapest, Hungary, in the field of Material Physics in 1976, and Doctor of Science in Physical Metallurgy (1995) and Professor degree in Materials (2004) at the Technical University in Košice, Slovakia. From 1989, he spent several years in the world's leading research Institutes thanks to the Alexander von Humboldt, Liese Meitner, Hertha Filnberg and European Commission scholarships.
    His research activities are focused on the development of advanced ceramics, he is especially recognized for his work on the nano/micro/macro mechanical testing and fractography of ceramic – graphene nanocomposites, ultra - high temperature ceramics and high entropy ceramics. He is the author and co-author of more than 250 publications with more than 4000 citations according to SCOPUS (h factor equal to 37). He is co-author of 5 patents and supervised 20 doctoral students.
    His work has been recognized many times with a number of prestigious Awards. In 2021 he was awarded by the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation and ESET Science Award for exceptional individuals of Slovak science. He is Academician of the World Academy of Ceramics, Hungarian Academy of Sciences, and Learned Society of Slovakia.
    Jan Dusza is Fellow of the European Ceramic Society. He regularly attends ECerS Conferences and contributes with publications for the Journal of the European Ceramic Society. 


    Prof. Jesus Gonzalez-Julian holds the chair of Ceramics at RWTH Aachen University (Germany). His research lies on the relation between processing, microstructure and properties of advanced ceramics and refractories. He has focused mostly on MAX phases, developing sustainable synthesis methods and processing different structures for the energy transition. He has also investigated the mechanisms of different novel sintering techniques such as Spark Plasma Sintering, cold sintering and flash sintering.
    His career has been connected to the European and national ceramic societies. During his PhD in Spain, he won the student contest at the National Ceramic Conference (SECV), participating in the “European Student Speech Contest” the following year in the ECerS conference in Poland. Afterwards, he started a postdoc position in Germany and applied a JECS Trust to visit Imperial College London (UK) for 6 months. Then, he moved to Forschungszentrum Jülich (Germany), where he has organized the symposium about Ceramic Matrix Composites at the National Conference (Deutsche Keramische Gesellschaft, DKG) in 2019 and 2021. Recently (June 2022), he has hosted a FIRE-ECerS Summer school entitled "Eco-Design of Refractories: E for Ecological, Economic, Eco-energetic” at RWTH Aachen.
    During this time, he has published 97 peer reviewed articles, including 22 in Journal of the European Ceramic Society, 1 in Open ceramics and 1 in Nature Materials, and has a H-index of 28, 4 patents, PI of 10 national and international projects with > 2.4 Mill. €, and an international experience in Spain, Germany, UK, and Japan. 


    Dr. Moritz v. Witzleben is Founder and Head of INMATEC Technologies GmbH. INMATEC Technologies GmbH is one of the leading companies worldwide for the production of thermoplastic ceramic feedstock for forming process as ceramic injection moulding and ceramic extrusion.
    After obtaining the Ph. D. in Bonn, Germany 1998 he founded the company INMATEC Technologies GmbH.
    His development fields are focused on development new organic binder systems for ceramic feedstocks and ceramic feedstocks for multifunctional ceramics, translucent und functional properties. He has lectures at 2 different Universities for Applied Sciences.
    Since 2012 he represents the German Ceramic Society (DKG) in the European Ceramic Society and was President of the European Ceramic Society from 2017 to 2019 and Chair of the JECS Trust from 2019 to 2021. He also became Fellow of ECerS in 2021.
