NACE Corrosion Consortia

A collaborative platform for accelerating corrosion mitigation research and innovation

Join the Corrosion Consortia

About the NACE Corrosion Consortia

Decreased corporate investment in research can slow, if not halt, organizations from obtaining vital information that would help in understanding how to best mitigate corrosion in their assets. Consortia is a cost-effective alternative that allows for industry partners to pool resources to study and share in the results of research pertinent to them.

While consortia members will formalize the overall structure and scope of the project, NACE International – with a long history of developing technical knowledge in corrosion prevention and sharing information in a fair and unbiased manner – will supply administrative services and broker the consortia relationships to facilitate the research.

Consortia members, or industry partners, can be companies, universities, labs, government bodies, research institutions, or individuals.


Industry Projects Currently Seeking Members

Additive Manufacturing

Additive Manufacturing

Additive Manufacturing (AM) allows for greater design ability and for assemblies to be printed in one process, improving operational efficiencies. The AM industry is projected to rapidly grow with companies accelerating and integrating these technologies for the build of products and unique parts within larger structures. Corrosion science and engineering experts who want to collaborate on researching innovative solutions to key challenges in the field of AM are being sought.
