Scientific and technological cooperation takes place on a global scale.
Therefore, the European Federation of Corrosion not only cooperates intensively with its European and International Member Societies and but with a number of organisations and associations within and outside of Europe.
Cooperation in Europe:
Worldwide Cooperation :
- Association for Materials Protection and Performance (AMPP)
AMPP (pronounced “amp”) was formed 4 January 2021 with the merger of NACE International and SSPC.
An historic agreement on cooperation between EFC and NACE International was signed by both parties during the NACE Corrosion Conference in San Diego on 19th March 2003. The Cooperation Agreement confers a number of other important benefits on both partner organisations. For more information please click here
- Chinese Society for Corrosion and Protection (CSCP)
A Memorandum of Understanding between EFC and CSCP was signed by both parties during EUROCORR 2018 in Krakow, Poland. The Memorandum formalises the will of EFC and CSCP to cooperate for the advancement of the science of corrosion and of the protection of materials; it also provides a framework for working cooperatively to advance these goals for the mutual benefit of their members.
The collaboration includes the promotion of academic visits, and in particular the CSCP supports the EFC Young Scientist Grant with a donation and further direct support to students travelling between Europe and China.
