I will try to point out a brief overview of the most important happenings in Hydrogen Embrittlement since the benefits of “The Network of Excellence (NoE) in Hydrogen Embrittlement” are available to all interested researchers, scientists, professionals and practitioners.


Numerous prestigious experts in the field of materials science and hydrogen degradation of materials are already present in LinkedIn Hydrogen Embrittlement Group. I’m very proud of that. Their names are in bold.

What makes HE Group so valuable are very fruitful discussions and the willingness of the group members to help and share knowledge.

This post is a part of:

The Network of Excellence (NoE) in Hydrogen Embrittlement


The Network of Excellence (NoE) in Hydrogen Embrittlement aims to strengthen scientific and technological excellence by developing an integrated and interdisciplinary scientific approach, and also by addressing the fragmentation of European and Worldwide research in this area.

The Network of Excellence in Hydrogen Embrittlement is structured so that it consists of the following branches:

  1. Hydrogen Embrittlement Group on LinkedIn
  2. Hydrogen Embrittlement  – Understanding and research framework Project  on ResearchGate
  3. Hydrogen Embrittlement Group on Mendeley
  4. Hydrogen Embrittlement and Materials Science Blog on WordPress
  5. Research Topic titled “Hydrogen Embrittlement Mechanisms” (now closed) in collaboration with Frontiers in Materials Journal within Corrosion Research section
  6. Damage and Fracture Mechanism Group on LinkedIn
