EFC Poster Prize

Following a proposal from the Science and Technology Advisory Committee (STAC), back in 2010 the EFC implemented a new award for the best Poster presented by a young author below the age of 35 years.

The Poster Prize is presented every year at the EUROCORR Conference and its aim is to encourage the submission and exhibition of more high quality posters carried out by young corrosion scientists and engineers, including PhD students, post-doctoral researchers, etc.

The Prize, which is based upon the decision of a STAC-appointed Jury, consists of a certificate and the sum of 500 euros. 

The recent Young Author's EFC Poster Prize was presented during the Poster Party  at EUROCORR 2019 in Sevlle, Spain.
