Biofilm Engineering Workshop
April 30 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm
The National Biofilms Innovation Centre (NBIC) is holding its second industry academic workshop on the subject of unmet needs in Biofilm Engineering. The field concerns the uses of biofilms at the interface with engineering and process applications.
This will be an essential session for anyone in an industrial or academic setting with a particular interest in meeting others who are also looking to explore the unmet needs in biofilm engineering. The event is open to all commercial/industrial concerns and to UK academics whose institution is currently, or plans to be, a member of NBIC.
The workshop will look at how to harness the benefits of biofilms from knowledge of their composition, function, ecology and evolution. This includes developing and improving engineered platforms and solutions e.g. wastewater, biotechnology, resource recovery from wastewater, microbial fuel cells, aerobic and anaerobic bio-refinery. The scope for this theme also includes precision tools for microbial community engineering using synthetic biology.
