Organized by:
1 Department of Engineering Materials and Welding, University of Belgrade, Faculty of Mechanical Engineering, Serbia
2 Laboratory for Multiscale Mechanics Modeling, École polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne – EPFL, Switzerland
3 Department of Structural Engineering, Faculty of Engineering – NTNU, Norway
within the
22nd European Conference on Fracture – ECF22, Belgrade, Serbia, August 26-31, 2018. (http://www.ecf22.rs/)
Download Announcement:
  • Our aim is to bring together top scientists and researchers in the field of hydrogen embrittlement in order to present the latest achievements, current state of the art and the future research framework in understanding of hydrogen embrittlement phenomena.
  • The main objective of this Special Symposium with a round table and panel discussions 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.
  • The idea is to attract top researchers in hydrogen embrittlement phenomena to participate with papers and to join the Special Symposium with a round table and panel discussions.

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” (closed now) in collaboration with Frontiers in Materials Journal within Corrosion Research section
  6. Damage and Fracture Mechanism Group on LinkedIn
