Research project

National Biofilms Innovation Centre NBIC Collaborative Training Partnership (CTP2)

Project overview

In summary,this CTP will run open calls for project between industry and our 64 associate academic partners for three years/ cohort intakes. These projects will be assessed by the NBIC’s IAB as well as theNBIC’s SMB against criteria related to how well they address:
•Overlapping NBIC’s PDME themes (biofilm Prevention, Detection, Management and Engineering)and leading-edge frontier and applied bioscience challenges relevant to BBSRCs remit and strategy.
•Provision of the support and challenge to develop multidisciplinary skills and capabilities demanded by industry in executing the project.
•Provide rich and rewarding placements which develop both the soft and hard skills to prepare the graduate student for the world of work in industry.
