About the ECG-COMON

The ECG-COMON was founded at the end of 2004 by a group of scientists who were looking for a way to push forward the application of the electrochemical noise technique to monitor localised corrosion. They met during a “brainstorming meeting” in Erlangen (Germany) and decided to create an informal group which meets once a year to discuss ongoing work and to organise Round-Robin excercises. Membership of the Group is open to those organisations that are currently performing and/or funding research and development efforts relevant to the Group’s objectives, or are directly involved in the application of the data generated by such work. Please find below the current member organisations and some further information on the Group.

Membership structure

Membership to the ECG-COMON is by organisation, not by person. The current membership consists of 28 organisations from 15 countries (see below) some being active in the nuclear field and some in other areas.

Executive Committee

The Group is coordinated by the Executive Committee which is composed of the Chairman, Scientific Secretary/Vice-Chairman, the Past-Chairman and two Working Group Leaders. The Executive Committee is elected by the members of the Group.
