About this session

Jane Evison : Introduction to Cosmetics Cluster UK

Introducing: Dr. Katerina Steventon Senior Innovation Consultant – National Biofilms Innovation Centre

Addressing this forum we will look broadly at biofilm related needs of the industry, companies operating in the supply chain, i.e. manufacturers, formulators, distributors but also consumers and retailers. The talk will focus on biofilms on the human body and on surfaces and on effective, innovative solutions for their detection, management and prevention ranging from surfactant formulations to physical means of biofilm disruption and removal e.g. microbubbles, standardised testing methods and novel design of adhesion-modifying surfaces. We will share a few successful case studies that facilitated new academic research to solve an industry need supported with our Proof of Concept Funding for early commercialisation.
