Euromat 2015 Conference,

Warsaw, Poland, September 20 – 24, 2015

Conference website: http://euromat2015.fems.org


The EUROMAT conferences have been held every two years since 1989, and have an increased record of bringing together up to 2000 researchers, scientists, trainees, and students from both academia and industry to discuss critical developments and perspectives in the field of materials science and technology and their applications.

A Symposium on Hydrogen embrittlement, Corrosion and Environmental Degradation is scheduled to run through 23h and 24th of September with detailed schedule given here:



Numerous prestigious experts in the field of materials science and hydrogen degradation of materials are already members of the LinkedIn Hydrogen Embrittlement Group. Some of them will give a lecture and participate in this excellent Symposium. Their names are in bold within Lectures – Highlights section below.

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 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.
