IN-HOUSE TALKS AND STATEMENTS
 

An exhaustive report of the RILEM doctoral course Corrosion Science & Corrosion Control for Infrastructure (CSC2i) has been recently published here. The course was held on 21-25 October at TU Delft, The Netherlands. 


 


The 10 participants greatly enjoyed the lectures on fundamental knowledge in the mornings followed by the afternoon laboratory and outdoor (semi-field & portable devises) classes. It was an intense course but very rewarding.


 


This year the course proposed two social events: 1) an informal dinner and 2) a RILEM sponsored drinks&bites at the local Cafè Labs.
