Young EFC meeting 2018

The Young EFC Meeting 2018 (Kracow, 10th Sept 2018) was attended by about 70 participants, mainly PhD students, post-doc research fellows and young scientists at the early stage of their carrier in the industry.

Thanks a lot to all the speakers for their inspiring and intriguing speeches: Ms. Anissa Célina Bouali (University of Kiel), Mr. Hongchang Qian (University of Science and Technology Beijing) Prof. Jinshan Pan (KTH Royal Institute of Technology) and Dr. Jan-Olov Nilsson (Hydro Extruded Solutions Ltd). They provided the attendees with several suggestions as well as interesting witnesses and examples coming from their professional experience.

Young EFC Meeting 2017

Dear Friends!

We are glad to have welcomed you to our meeting in Prague at the EUROCORR 2017 conference. We received both very positive feedback and constructive criticism from you and would like to thank you very much! The Young EFC board has come up with a lot of activities in Prague which have conferred the conference a beautiful colour. For example, the Young EFC was involved in the jury of the overall poster prize competition. We are shaping things to become ‘young’ and will continue to promote young corrosion researchers.
More than 50 people participated in our meeting during the conference in which we had the opportunity to meet a lot of young corrosion researchers and some senior experts, such as Prof Christofer Leygraf and Dr Sytze Huizinga who support us in becoming a bridge between senior professionals and young corrosionists.

We congratulate Beatriz Mingo Roman, Elisabetta Di Francia, and Baiwei Zhu who received the EFC Young Scientist Grant of the last year! Many thanks to them for presenting their work which certainly has encouraged many other young corrosion scientists and engineers to apply for this grant in future.

We are preparing us for the EUROCORR 2018 conference to be held in Krakow in Poland and hope to meet old and new friends there! Take care and all the best!

Launching of the Young EFC


Young EFC is an initiative created in 2016 by the European Federation of Corrosion (EFC) to support young researchers and engineers in the field of corrosion and protection of materials.

The first meeting of the Young EFC was held at EUROCORR2016 (Montpellier, France) and aroused great interest in the audience.
It was attended by more than 40 participants who actively interacted with the Young EFC Board, rising a constructive debate about the situation of young researchers and engineers in the corrosion field. It was highlighted the common interested in a network of young corrosionists and the improvement of knowledge exchange between young corrosion researchers and senior experts.
The main objective of the meeting was to gather information with the aim to design new actions for a successful young generation of corrosionists. Supported by the EFC, the next EUROCORR2017 (Prague, Czech Republic) will be the place to start with some of those activities.

Do not hesitate to join this initiative (No fees are required):
