General information

The MECC is the joint conference of the national clay groups of Hungary, Poland, Slovakia and Croatia.

The plan of joint meetings of the Mid-European clay groups was decided during the EUROCLAY Meeting in Kraków, Poland in 1999, and supported by the European Clay Groups Association (ECGA). The aim of meetings is to promote co-operation and exchange of ideas among specialists of neighbouring countries. Participants from other countries of Europe and from other continents are welcome.

The first MECC was organised by the Slovak Clay Group in Stara Lesna in 2001 (114 participants from eighteen European and four overseas countries), while MECC’04 was organised in Miskolc, Hungary (142 participants from twenty-three countries from five continents).
