The International Rhine Ceramic Round Table, with globally acclaimed professional voices, initiated an important discussion on the most critical challenges of science and technology of functional materials and ceramics. More importantly, this expert group underlined the role of professional societies in enabling open innovation and global collaboration for augmenting professional recognition and visibility of the field. All panel members and attendees agreed to maintain a more thorough and continuous exchange and supported the agenda “act locally, connect globally” with the aim of increasing the value proposition for members and catering to the pressing needs of diversity and internationalization.
