The Federation of European Sections
Welcome to the website of the Federation of the European Sections of the Combustion Institute.
The Federation of the European Sections of the Combustion Institute was founded in 2001. It is presently chaired by Terese Løvås (Norwegian University of Science and Technology, Trondheim, Norway).
Its major aim is to provide a forum for knowledge transfer in the field of combustion and related scientific and technological disciplines among academic researchers, graduate students and combustion professionals and thus, to ultimately, promote combustion research in Europe. This is accomplished mainly through the organization of european combustion meetings held on a regular basis (ECM).
The Combustion Institute, founded in 1954, is an international non-profit, scientific and engineering society whose sole purpose is to promote research in the field of combustion science. This is done through the dissemination of research findings at regional and national meetings, the biennial international symposia, through the publication of the symposium proceedings and the Institute's journal, Combustion and Flame. The Institute serves as the parent organization to national sections organized in many countries, numbering 29 as of 2004.
