The EFC is a federation of organisations - Member Societies and Affiliate Members -  with interests in corrosion based in Europe and beyond. 
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 Working Parties and Task Forces devoted to various aspects of corrosion and its prevention.

As a scientific organisation, the European Federation of Corrosion would like to express its strong support for the Joint Statement by the National Academies of the G7 States on Russia’s Attack on Ukraine.
We stand by all Ukrainians affected by this unjustified attack on their country and express our heartfelt sympathy to the people of Ukraine, in particular to the families of those killed, injured or displaced from their homes.
The unprovoked attack on Ukraine is a fundamental breach of the democratic values upon which the EFC is built. Therefore, the Board of Administrators has decided to suspend all activities with organisations affiliated with the authorities of the Russian Federation with immediate effect.
In this dark hour, we add our voices to all (including many Russians) who oppose this aggression, with the profound hope that this desperate situation can be resolved as expediently as possible, while minimising any further unnecessary loss of life.
