EUROCORR Young Scientist Grant

Founded and presented by the European Federation of Corrosion

The EUROCORR Young Scientist Grant is a new award, founded and presented by the EFC. Its objective is to stimulate interaction and collaboration within the international corrosion community, by providing financial support to junior corrosionists to enable them to visit and interact with other corrosionists at their home institute abroad and to discuss research issues of mutual concern relevant to the field. A special EUROCORR Young Scientist Grant Selection Committee makes the grant selection on the basis of brief proposals submitted. It will be presented at the yearly EUROCORR Conference.

To enter the competition, two applicants submit a proposal, focused on the research area or issue they want to discuss bilaterally at the home institute of one of the partners, using the Application Form. The main applicant should not be older than 30 years and should be a participant to the EUROCORR taking place the year when the award is granted.

The submission deadline is 1 March of the year of the EUROCORR the grant will be awarded. Submissions after this deadline will not be considered.
