Daniel de la Fuente PhD in Chemical Sciences. He is a researcher in the Department of Materials Engineering, Degradation and Durability at the National Centre for Metallurgical Research (CSIC). He has worked in the areas of atmospheric corrosion of metals, protection by organic coatings and laboratory accelerated corrosion tests. He has taken part, within the last 5 years, in 12 European, Iberoamerican and Spanish Research Projects related with his research topic. He has published more than 25 papers in the main Journals of the area and has also carried out nearly 25 communications to National and International Corrosion and Protection Congresses.
Belén Chico PhD in Chemical Sciences. She is a researcher in the Department of Materials Engineering, Degradation and Durability at the National Centre for Metallurgical Research (CSIC), and for more than 10 years, she has worked in the areas of atmospheric corrosion and adhesion chemistry of paints on different metallic surfaces. She specializes in surface analysis techniques. She has published 30 research papers and some chapters of different books on corrosion and protection of metals in the atmosphere and protection by organic coatings. She has also presented nearly 25 communications to different Congresses related with her research area and has taken part in many research projects on corrosion and protection.
