Q3 2001 - Questions were sent to
Euporean members of EDFAS that allow us to identify
the interest of an European network. This interest was
confirmed by the answer of questionnaire we widely spread
to European failure analysts.
EUFANET network started in 2001:
Q4 2001 - The
first EUFANET workshop took place at Arcachon (France)
during ESREF 2001 conference. 45 people attended this
meeting that officially trigger the EUFANET network.
Q1 2002 - 3 months later, we proposed EUFANET forum dedicated
to failure analysis, a mailing list that allows people to send a question, a
suggestion, an answer, a piece of information or a piece of advice throughout
the EUFANET public channel or through a private channel. Now, we welcomed 120 people directly
or indirectly involved in failure analysis
Q4 2002 - This second workshop took
place at Rimini (Italy) during ESREF 2002. 20 people
attended this meeting focused on a technical topic.
we validated the idea of an annual short meeting, during
ESREF with some technical topics.
Q4 2003 -we started the web site
to give an overview of
activities and facilities in Europe, to collect basic
information and tips on FA and to help exchange
of experiences and joint projects within the European
Failure analysis community.
