BBSRC and Innovate UK have launched the second phase of the UK Biofilms Programme to establish a Biofilms Innovation Knowledge Centre (IKC). An investment of approximately £12.5M will be provided to establish the IKC alongside an in-kind contribution of up to £1M worth of access, over five years to the High Performance Computing facilities within the Hartree Centre at the Science and Technology Facilities Council's (STFC) Daresbury Laboratory.

  • Development of biofilm management technologies
  • Understanding biofilms through rapid, functional characterisation

Expressions of interest application deadline: 8 February 2017, 4pm
