Budapest, Hungary


Our motto: Materials science and advanced technologies for better corrosion protection

We wish to inform you that due to the ongoing pandemic situation, the local organisers of EUROCORR 2021, together with EFC, have decided to transform the upcoming annual conference into a virtual event. In order to enable the authors to agree to their virtual participation and/or to submit further abstracts for a virtual conference, it was decided to postpone the deadline for poster and lecture contributions to 31st March 2021. Consequently, the review process, paper selection meeting, and authors notification will also be postponed.

We hope that in the not too distant future, when the epidemiological situation allows it, you all will have the opportunity to visit our beautiful capital, Budapest. Budapest is full of surprises and wonder, with its lively center, pretty parks, majestic river, tall church spires and lavish spas. One of the most exciting cities in the world, Budapest is full of secrets, hidden spots to explore and old favorites to revisit. We wish you all to experience also the legendary Hungarian hospitality once you have the chance to visit our country.

Domestic industries, research and development centres, and educational institutions encounter corrosion related materials degradation problems time to time. Since its foundation in 1992 the Hungarian Corrosion Society (HUNKOR) has got its mission and endeavour to serve the needs of these branches.

Now HUNKOR, the Hungarian professional corrosion engineering society together with Diamond Congress Ltd. has got the privilege to host and organise the annual Congress and Exhibition of the European Federation of Corrosion /EFC/ in Budapest in 2021. Each and every year this event is the largest and most important one in Europe attracting many attendees coming from other continents as well.

Colleagues are also welcome from the primary metal producers to the surface finishing specialists, dealing with sophisticated techniques of surface and corrosion protection technologies including the implementation of evolving new materials, special additives and novel composites used e.g. in coatings and in many other ways to fight against corrosion and protect our products from unexpected or too fast degradation leading to materials failures and sometimes even to catastrophic events.

Considering the new international trends in this field, the motto of EUROCORR 2021, Budapest is the following:

Materials science and advanced technologies
for better corrosion protection

To reach this aim, the organisers of EUROCORR 2021 would like to invite You to contribute in this important event, which will provide high-level scientific presentations scheduled in many parallel sessions for four days. Our agenda includes plenary and keynote lectures by internationally recognised experts, several workshops, discussion forums and exhibition to let industrial stakeholders introduce themselves in an effective way.

Local organizers has already confirmed participation of two invited plenary speakers with the hot topics of:

Dr. Jan-Olov Nilsson
Trace element influence of surface treatment and corrosion properties in recycled 6xxx aluminium alloys
Dr. Jan-Olov Nilsson
Prof. Rajan Ambat
Humidity induced failures and corrosion reliability problems in the electronics
Prof. Rajan Ambat
