Hydrogen Embrittlement & Materials Science


The Network of Excellence (NoE) in Hydrogen Embrittlement aims to strengthen scientific and technological excellence by developing an integrated and interdisciplinary scientific understanding of hydrogen degradation of engineering materials and their co-evolution with science, materials science, industry and society, and also by addressing the fragmentation of European and Worldwide research in this area.

Its main objective is to enable an open and productive dialogue between all disciplines which study hydrogen embrittlement phenomena from any scientific or technological perspective and which in turn are being transformed by continuous advances in materials science and technology. I strongly believe in the spirit of open collaboration.

Hydrogen damages is one of the most complex phenomena of degradation of metallic materials, due to a number of new unknowns in the kinetics of process, compared to the degradation in the absence of hydrogen in the metal.

Most often, a multidisciplinary approach based on the use…
