Welcome to your August edition of the EFC Newsletter. 

It’s that time of year when all eyes in the world of corrosion prevention turn towards the annual EUROCORR conference - and your Newsletter has all you need to know.  

Inside, the EUROCORR 2023 local organising committee explain the details and decisions that have gone into planning this year's event, and you’ll also find information about the congress programme, all joint sessions, as well as details of all Working Party meetings, which will also host the election of new WP Chairs and Vice-Chairs.  

The Young EFC will be present at EUROCORR, with Viacheslav Shkirskiy selected as YEFC Plenarist. The 2023 event in the Brussels Meeting Centre will also host presentations for the prestigious European Corrosion Medal and this year’s winner, Dr Michael Rohwerder, discusses the award, modern challenges, and the future, while Steve Paterson and Wolfram Fürbeth explain what becoming an EFC Honorary Fellow means to them.  

There’s also space to highlight the latest addition to the EFC Green Book Series and shine a light on the Nickeffect Project, as well as the latest events for your corrosion calendar from around the world. 

All the best and I hope you have a fantastic EUROCORR,

Dear Readers,

Welcome to the traditional April edition of the EFC newsletter

It’s an exciting time of change at the EFC and with World Corrosion Awareness Day just around the corner, there’s plenty to celebrate.

Tomáš Prošek introduces his first Newsletter as EFC President with an impassioned introduction on the importance of corrosion science and the joys of working in the industry. After all, “Unhappy, depressed, unemployed, or poor corrosionists are as rare as lustrous pieces of carbon steel washed up from the sea.” 

Inside, the delegates for EUROCORR 2023 in Brussels are introduced, Young EFC lead the World Corrosion Awareness Day celebrations, and there’s also a chance to meet the two winners of the grant WP4 Nuclear Corrosion Summer School in Slovenia.

However, it’s Pascal Collet who has perhaps brought with him the biggest change at EFC following his appointment as the new COO and in his interview on page 4 he reveals his unlikely inspiration to enter the paint industry.
