EFC Newsletter 27
Print issue September 2019
Welcome to the EFC newsletter.
These are difficult times but, taking a lead from the encouraging President’s letter later in this issue, the EFC community will do all it can to engender a positive group spirit among our different member societies and global corrosion associations. One way of doing this is by disseminating knowledge and encouraging group discussion. To facilitate this, WEBINARS on various subjects are being planned. The first on the topic Corrosion and Low Carbon Energies will take place THIS COMING FRIDAY between 2 and 4 pm (CET) on 24thApril (Corrosion Awareness Day). It is being run by the WCO (see below for more details). Further webinars are coming up organised by the EFC, with the first one on coatings scheduled for May 20th. The format of these webinars will be that a group of experts deliver short talks and then take questions.
Until the lockdown, EFC member societies had of course been active and reports on several meetings are included in this report.
Regarding EUROCORR 2020, a final decision on this event has not yet been taken, so there are no details in this newsletter about it. We hope to publish another short newsletter when matters become clearer.
On a positive note, at least here in UK we have been blessed with exceptionally good Spring weather; almost as compensation for the hard times we all live in. But the good times will come again, never fear!
