Description of Activity
Funded by BBSRC, Innovate UK and Hartree Centre, the National Biofilms Innovation Centre, NBIC, is the central hub where academia, industry, government, and public policy can come together to make great things happen.
The National Biofilms Innovation Centre is an Innovation Knowledge Centre (IKC) jointly funded by the BBSRC, Innovate UK, and the Hartree Centre. At NBIC we aim to connect scientists specialising in Biofilms across the UK, and to provide a mechanism for industrial partners to explore their unmet needs with our researchers . With our roadmapping sessions and conferences, we aim to facilitate the exchange of problems , solutions and ideas in the biofilms sector. Through our PhD and Post-Doc programs, we will nurture researchers to grow their expertise . We will also provide entrepreneur training to our researchers to help them better understand the commercial environment and encourage the start-up of Micro and SME businesses.
Through all this we aim to ensure the UK can remain a Global leader in Biofilms R&D.
