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 of different experimental-laboratory methods, theoretical models, micro-and nano-research, micro-fracture mechanics and solid-state physics, provides the conditions for a much better understanding of extremely complex and simultaneously active mechanisms of hydrogen embrittlement.
The Network of Excellence in Hydrogen Embrittlement is structured so that it consists of the following branches:
- Hydrogen Embrittlement Group on LinkedIn
- Hydrogen Embrittlement – Understanding and research framework Project
- Hydrogen Embrittlement Group on Mendeley
- Hydrogen Embrittlement and Materials Science Blog on WordPress
- Research Topic titled “Hydrogen Embrittlement Mechanisms” (closed now) in collaboration with Frontiers in Materials Journal within Corrosion Research section
- Damage and Fracture Mechanism Group on LinkedIn

The Network of Excellence (NoE) in Hydrogen Embrittlement
1. Hydrogen Embrittlement Group on LinkedIn
Hydrogen Embrittlement Group on Linkedin (2100 + members) is a forum for discussing matters related to hydrogen embrittlement mechanisms of metallic materials. My idea is to bring together all interested researchers, scientists and practitioners to exchanging opinions on extremely complex and incompletely understood mechanisms of hydrogen embrittlement.
The aim of this open group is to discuss matters related to hydrogen embrittlement mechanisms of metallic materials including HEDE, HELP, AIDE, HESIV, hydride-induced embrittlement, as well as, all other proposed contemporary micro-nano-atomic-mechanisms.
Also, discussions and industrial case studies about hydrogen-induced cracking hydrogen-induced corrosion, and high temperature hydrogen attack mechanisms, with practical experiences, are welcome. Some prestigious experts in the field of materials science and hydrogen degradation of materials are already present in this group. All interested researchers are welcome to this open Linkedin group.
All interested researchers are welcome to this Linkedin group.
2. Hydrogen Embrittlement – Understanding and research framework Project
I started Hydrogen Embrittlement – Understanding and research framework Project on ResearchGate (80+ members, 210+ followers, 2300+ reads, 40+ updates) with an idea that the top experts in the field come together and share valuable experiences and current state of the art on hydrogen embrittlement.
Some prestigious experts in the field of hydrogen embrittlement are the project participants. In order to join this project, first you must registered on ReseachGate and connect with me. I’ll be happy afterwards, to include you into the project as an active member and potential participant.
For some more info about ResearchGate new tool – Projects, optimized for collaboration, feel free to check this link. This Project is only accessible to the Project members, making them an ideal place for private and secure data sharing, real-time feedback and scientific collaboration.
I cordially invite interested experts in the field of hydrogen embrittlement to join Hydrogen Embrittlement – Understanding and research framework online Project on ResearchGate.
3. Hydrogen Embrittlement Group on Mendeley
Hydrogen Embrittlement group on Mendeley (10+ members) is subsidiary of the Hydrogen Embrittlement LinkedIn group.
4. Hydrogen Embrittlement and Materials Science Blog
Hydrogen Embrittlement and Materials Science Blog discuss matters related to materials science and hydrogen embrittlement mechanisms of metallic materials.
This site is not about me, it is about materials science and hydrogen embrittlement. Even though the information presented on the blog is correct to the best of my knowledge, I do not pretend to have the last word. I urge all my readers to leave comments, start discussions, and help me correct mistakes.
If you like to contribute content to the site or have any suggestions please contact me. In addition, I plan on having guest posts once per quarter (or so) to cover special topics in materials science & technology and corrosion.
5. Research Topic titled “Hydrogen Embrittlement Mechanisms” (closed now) in collaboration with Frontiers in Materials Journal within Corrosion Research section
In collaboration with Frontiers in Materials Journal (open-access), within Corrosion Research, as a specialty section of Frontiers in Materials, we are organizing a research Topic titled “Hydrogen Embrittlement Mechanisms”, hosted by me and Prof. Andrej Atrens. I have been named Guest Associate Editor. As such; I will be responsible for building the review editorial board and overseeing the review process.
The idea behind a research Topic is to create an organized, comprehensive collection of several contributions (articles), as well as a forum for discussion and debate. Contributions can be articles describing original research, methods, hypothesis & theory, opinions, etc.
A brief description of the Hydrogen Embrittlement Mechanisms Topic is provided on our homepage on the Frontiers website (section “Corrosion”). This is also where all articles will appear after peer-review and where participants in the topic will be able to hold relevant discussions.
Frontiers, a Swiss open-access publisher, recently partnered with Nature Publishing Group to expand its researcher-driven Open Science platform. Frontiers articles are rigorously peer-reviewed, can be disseminated freely and are widely read by your colleagues and by the broader scientific research communities.
As topic editor, I would like to encourage you to contribute to this topic. In order to contribute to this topic, first you must register on Frontiers. Feel free to contact me for any further assistance.
6. Damage and Fracture Mechanisms Group on LinkedIn
Damage Mechanisms Group on LinkedIn (300 + members) – subgroup of Hydrogen Embrittlement group is a forum for discussing all aspects of engineering materials damages and failures (conventional and advanced materials), including:
►multiscale modeling and analysis, identification and understanding of damage and fracture mechanisms, predictability and mitigation/preventative measures,
►materials behaviour, degradation, aging, damages & service life assessment,
►damage, fracture and failure modeling & analysis,
►fracture and crack Initiation and propagation,
►root cause analysis and
All interested researchers are welcome to this Linkedin group.
Please contact me on LinkedIn or ResearchGate if you have any questions, suggestions or proposals how to improve our Network of Excellence (NoE) in Hydrogen Embrittlement. The benefits of this network are available to all interested researchers, scientists, professionals and practitioners. Without your participation Dear colleagues, this network would not be successful.
Thanks in advance.
