In association with the World Corrosion Organization (WCO), the Chinese Society of Corrosion and Prevention (CSCP) and the European Federation of Corrosion (EFC) have collaborated to create an international award to celebrate outstanding achievement in raising public awareness of corrosion.
The CORROSION Awareness Honour recognises pioneering individuals who have made a substantial contribution to increasing awareness of the importance of corrosion and corrosion protection amongst government, industry and the general public.

Professor Baorong Hou from the National Marine Corrosion Protection Engineering Research Centre in China is the 2021 recipient of the inaugural international award. The international jury, composed of CSCP, EFC and WCO members, has recognised his outstanding contribution to increasing awareness of the importance of corrosion and corrosion protection amongst government, academia, industry and the public, particularly his leadership in highlighting seawater corrosion protection and control through scientific, technological and dissemination initiatives and his marked impact on educational and industrial activities.
We wish Professor Baorong Hou all the very best and hope he continues to actively promote corrosion awareness.
