Flyer "What is EFC"



The EFC is a federation of 38 organisations (Member Societies and Affiliate Members) with interests in corrosion based in 25 different countries within Europe and beyond. Taken together, its Member Societies represent the corrosion interests of more than 25,000 engineers and scientists.

Founded in 1955, its aim is to advance the science of the corrosion and protection of materials by promoting cooperation in Europe and collaboration internationally. [ more...]

The EFC accomplishes its most important activities through twenty active working parties devoted to various aspects of corrosion and its prevention.

EUROCORR , the EFC's annual conference is the flagship event of the European corrosion calendar. The forthcoming EUROCORR will be held in Cracow, Poland, on 9-13 September 2018.

EFC Courses
Cathodic Protection in Concrete
The "Cathodic Protection in Concrete" Course is an intensive 5-day course that focuses on the principles and procedures for CP in concrete. The course discusses the design factors, CP set-up, commissioning, monitoring and operating procedures. Topics of the course are in compliance with EN 12696 and NACE RP0290. The course involves lectures and in-class discussion and practice. Trainers are experienced professors and technicians form university and industry.
Target group: CP technicians and engineers
