Harnessing the UK’s Academic & Industrial Strength in Biofilms

We’re creating a fusion of world class interdisciplinary research and industry partnerships to deliver breakthrough science and technologies to control and exploit biofilms.

Annual Report

Biofilms are central to our most important global challenges – from antimicrobial resistance and food safety to water security – and exert significant economic, social and environmental impact. NBIC was launched in 2017 to address these challenges and unmet needs, and bring together the best of UK research and businesses to drive the translation of biofilm research into innovative solutions.
