Kick-off meeting of the e.Biofilm project
Posted on March 13th, 2023
The kick-off meeting of the e.Biofilm project took place on the 3rd of March 2023. The e.Biofilm is an ERA-CHAIR project funded by the European Comission that aims to create a group of excellence in Biofilm Engineering at FEUP.
The project is led by Darla Goeres, from the Center for Biofilm Engineering (CBE) of Montana State University (MSU), together with Nuno F. Azevedo from the Biofilm Engineering Lab (BEL) at LEPABE/ALiCE. As this project aims to strengthen the collaboration between the MSU and FEUP, the kick-off meeting will also count with the presence of Matthew Fields, the director of the CBE.
