Bringing Researchers & Industry Partners Together

Our Mission is to establish a network of research and innovation capacity catalysing collaboration with industry in the study of biofilms to achieve breakthrough innovation.

The National Biofilms Innovation Centre is an Innovation Knowledge Centre (IKC) jointly funded by the BBSRC, Innovate UK, and the Hartree Centre. NBIC pride ourselves with the broad range of network of scientists specialising in Biofilms across the UK, and a ready collaboration platform for industrial partners to explore their focus with our scientists, backed by top-of-the-world laboratory and data processing facilities. With our road mapping sessions and conferences, we facilitate the exchange of ideas in the biofilms sector. Through our PhD and Post-Doc programs, we nurture researchers to grow and go further. We also provide entrepreneur training to our researchers to help them understanding the business operation, encouraging start-up of SMEs. We aim to help UK becoming the leading country in Biofilms R&D.

Building Connections

Connecting the many universities and companies with interests in biofilms, NBIC is creating a vibrant cross-sectoral community within the UK and globally, providing opportunities for research collaboration and innovation.
