Western launches international corrosion training program

Western University has launched a new international corrosion training program that will help train corrosion scientists. The program will be led by Western Professor Yolanda Hedberg, and will include collaboration between eight universities in Canada, 20 international universities, industry partners, and corrosion associations. The project will teach children and young adults about corrosion as a global problem and consider how they can use their knowledge about corrosion to change the world. “We’re looking to enrich the education and teach students that this kind of science is accessible and has practical implications,” said Hedberg. The program is supported through a $1.65M grant from the NSERC Collaborative Research and Training Experience program.
