About

The Bioelectrochemical Society (BES) is an international scientific association founded by Giulio Milazzo in 1979 to promote understanding and cooperation among scientists interested in the application of electrochemical concepts and techniques to the fundamental or applied study of living systems.

BES is a non-profit making organization. The Society is composed of individuals and corporate members in the following categories: regular, honorary.

BES pursues its objective using various means, including:

  • organising scientific meetings;
  • publishing scientific works in periodicals or other forms;
  • editing specialized periodicals;
  • editing specialized periodicals;
  • contributing to the development of a common language among scientists of the different disciplines involved in the (scientific, technical and applied) development of bioelectrochemistry, especially among the diverse groups interested in such aspects as energetics, pharmacology, medicine, etc.;
  • stimulating the establishment, among its members, of co-operative programs on particular subjects, especially interdisciplinary, and, if the need arises, assuring the management of international programmes of study or research.
  • attributing awards in the field of the Bioelectrochemistry.
