Virtual Congress, 19-23 September 2021

As the 2021 hosts of the renowned annual corrosion congress EUROCORR, HUNKOR, together with the European Federation of Corrosion, EFC, and DECHEMA, we cordially invite you to attend EUROCORR 2021.

COVID-19 update, 8 February 2021

We regret to inform you that due to ongoing global health concerns and travel restrictions resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic, the local organising committee of EUROCORR 2021, in consultation with the EFC were compelled to cancel the physical EUROCORR 2021 congress scheduled for September in Budapest in order to protect attendees, staff, and the EFC community.
Nevertheless, EFC wishes to continue the exchange of scientific results and networking within the international corrosion community and as such EUROCORR 2021 will be transformed into a virtual event.
The deadline for confirmation of submitted abstracts and the submission deadline for new abstracts for lecture and poster contributions is 31 March 2021.

Do you know that only less than 30% of the scientists are women?
Aiming at increasing the visibility of Women scientists, the Young EFC would like to publish (LinkedIn) pictures of female corrosionists in their workplace (lab, office, home office, ...). EFC LinkedIn account:
We would like to invite our female members to share with us: 1 photo + affiliation + short description.
Please send it to YoungEFC(at) before February 11th.
