Watch: NBIC Biofilm Prevention Workshop

Following our previous interdisciplinary workshops on biofilm detection, engineering and management, we held our final workshop on biofilm prevention on Wednesday 24 November 2021 in Birmingham. 

The Biofilm Prevention Workshop provided a unique forum for accelerating academic-industry partnerships to allow prevent-based research approaches to be translated into innovation across multiple sectors. An initial plenary session was led by NBIC to summarise and discuss an outline scope of the needs, followed by cross industry/academia group sessions, and an opportunity for short pitches of ideas or problems.

This proved to be an essential session for anyone in an industrial or academic setting with an interest in the prevention of early-stage microbial adhesion and colonisation events at surfaces and interfaces, and curtailing the development and maturation of early-stage biofilms.

The recordings and the slides from the presentations are available below.
