EFC Working Party 4: Nuclear Corrosion

 

Mission:

  • To provide links between European teams and EU-funded programs in the nuclear corrosion field, with an opening on to the world;
  • To initiate and stimulate opportunities of exchange of scientific and technical subjects related to nuclear corrosion, particularly on today's main nuclear research areas (waste systems, water reactors, generation IV and fusion reactors);
  • To promote corrosion science and technical developments through events such as seminars, workshops, publications, etc.
     

NEWs:

  • The 2017 Henri Coriou Award for outstanding contributions to corrosion science and engineering in the nuclear field will be given, just before his invited lecture during this year's EUROCORR (on 4 September, 13:35), to:

    Prof. Hannu Hänninen, Aalto University, Finland
