The Ceramic Innovation Network (CIN) - created by BCC and Lucideon, with support from the University of Surrey and Knowledge Transfer Network (KTN) - arranges annual events for the UK ceramic research base and industrialists around themes based on the principal challenges faced by the ceramic industry that may be solved through innovation and collaborative work.

Topics covered to-date include:

2014    Defect Reduction in Structural Ceramics: Problems and Practical Solutions

2015    Reduce-Replace-Recycle: Effective Material Resource Management in Ceramics

2016    Energy Efficiency in Ceramic Processing

2017    Digital Technologies in Ceramic Manufacturing

2018    Ceramics in Society: Demanding Environments

2019    Accelerating Clean Growth in Ceramics

2020    Firing up the Ceramics Industry and Exploring Sintering

CIN builds upon the former Structural Ceramics Network (SCERN), which was an Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) funded network, the primary purpose of which was to bring together the structural ceramics community to increase co-operation and integration.
