European Federation for Welding, Joining and Cutting
The European Federation for Welding, Joining and Cutting (EWF) is an international non-profit association established by welding institutes from several European countries.
EWF acts as the representative of the welding and joining community in Europe. It prepares harmonised rules for the education and training of personnel involved in welding, joining and related technologies. The Federation liaises with standardisation bodies and provides for exchanges of scientific and technical information. EWF also encourage projects in co-operative research and contributions to the removal of technical barriers.
The Federation facilitates technology transfer through the EWF Network. EWF has been involved in several European projects as a disseminator of results through its members and through them to a large number of industrial contacts.
