Nowadays, early career researchers and engineers are challenged by the need for ingenious technical expertise combined with a strong scientific understanding of fundamental materials and corrosion problems. On top of that there is invariable time pressure. It is crucial to make a successful career, to have an experienced mentor or supervisor who has knowledge with the comprehension of how to develop personal and social skills, how to implement the right scientific methodology … And yes, this is really challenging. Materials and corrosion science are a fascinating poly-faceted multidisciplinary research field, which requires early career scientists and engineers and senior experts to collaborate, share expertise and efficiently communicate in order to address current and future corrosion problems.

The YEFC aims at bringing all the different actors of the corrosion community together.
