What is it ?

and

What does it do ?


The bvc its remit
The BVC – its remit

The British Vacuum Council is a registered charity which is charged with representing, at an international level, the professional interests of scientists and engineers in Great Britain who work in fields related to vacuum.

It carries out this function by acting as an umbrella body for those professional and learned societies which have members working in such field.

These societies are then the institutional members of the Council.


A little history

The British Vacuum Council (BVC) came into existence in 1959, under the original name of the Joint British Committee for Vacuum Science and Technology (JBCVST).

In April 1969 the name was changed to the British Vacuum Council and in November 1985, it was accepted as a registered charity under UK law (Reg No 292999)

The British Vacuum Council (BVC) is the representative for Great Britain on the International Union for Vacuum Science, Technique and Applications (IUVSTA).

As such it has a role to stimulate international collaboration in the fields of vacuum science, techniques and applications and related multi-disciplinary topics including solid-vacuum and other interfaces.
