Building a Globally Leading Partnership Between USA and UK’s Biofilm Innovation Centres; Development of MIC Biofilm Standardisation

Project overview

The main objective of this US-UK partnership is to bring together complementary expertise (academic, industrial and regulatory), of the US Centre for Biofilm Engineering and the UKs National Biofilms Innovation Centre, to address the need for standardisation in the biofilms field and to devise a dedicated biofilm standardisation programme. The partnership will create: i) discussion channel for researchers from academia and industry, metrology institutes and regulatory agencies; ii) a forum to direct and progress biofilm standardisation; iii) platform to engage in pre- and normative activities, leading to international standards.
