COST-ACTION CA20130 –European Microbiologically Influenced Corrosion (MIC) Network – New paths for science, sustainability and standards

Action Chair: Dr Andrea Koerdt

Action Vice-Chair: Dr Torben Lund Skovhus 


Microbiologically Influenced Corrosion (MIC) is a phenomenon that is increasingly becoming a problem for the society. MIC describes the negative effects a material can experience due to the presence of microorganisms.

This COST Action will provide the interaction and communication, knowledge sharing, training of personnel and of researchers of different disciplines to deal with MIC by a transdisciplinary approach. This will bring Europe to a leading role in this process, bringing ideas on an equal level with other nations, considering the values which are important for Europe and attitudes (e.g. environmental protection) and representing greater protection for people, property and the environment.
