Abstract: The Persh Workshop is a series of Department of Defense (DOD)-level workshops initiated by the Defense Science and Technology Reliance 21 Materials and Manufacturing Process Community of Interest, which recognizes that direct communication between the stakeholders is a valuable way of identifying common issues that should be addressed or further assessed. This Sixth Persh Workshop's topic "Corrosion Policy Guiding Science and Technology" was selected because of its current relevance to the DOD acquisition and sustainment communities. This workshop consisted of 2 days of discussions with panel sessions and keynote speeches. Attendees were represented by government, industry, and academia. The workshop resulted in a number of very important observations about workforce developments and defined them based on the inputs from all participants. A number of very significant questions and challenges were defined that subsequently led to the generation of pertinent recommendations for the technical community to consider for further actions.
