European Corrosion Medal

 
The purpose of the European Corrosion Medal is to recognise achievements by a scientist, or group of scientists, in the application of corrosion science in the widest sence. The recipient(s) must be of a nationality corresponding to one, or more, of the Member Societies of the EFC and the work must be conducted within a European country.

The award consists of a bronze medal, a diploma and a sum of 1000 Euros.
The European Corrosion Medal is awarded every year ( preferably on the occasion of a Europen Corrosion Congress (EUROCORR). The laureate is invited to give a lecture related to the work for which the medal was attributed. 

The recent European Corrosion Medal was awarded at EUROCORR 2016 in Montpellier, France.


 

Laureate 2016:

Professor Lorenzo Fedrizzi, Italy

 
Lorenzo Fedrizzi is a full professor of Materials Science and Technology at the University of Udine, Italy, where he teaches Composite Materials Science and Technology and Corrosion at the Engineering Faculty. His main scientific interests are corrosion protection by coatings (organic, metallic and ceramic); materials durability; study of tribo-corrosion mechanisms; study and development of innovative coatings by sol-gel, PVD, CVD and thermal spraying technologies; corrosion behaviour of sintered metal parts; study, development and characterization of metal alloys.

The European Corrosion Medal was presented to Prof. Marcus at EUROCORR 2015’s opening session in Graz, Austria.

 


Laureate 2014:

Professor Herman Terryn, Belgium


Herman Terryn was chosen for the prestigious EFC Award by his peers based upon his clear vision towards the industrial relevance and needs drawn from the field of corrosion, electro-chemistry and surface science and their relation to materials. He is recognised as a pioneer in the frontiers of corrosion and surface science as he adeptly cross references combined activities in the areas of corrosion technology, functional surface engineering, surface characterisation and electrochemical characterisation.
