SURFBIO Innovation Hub launching
- JSI, Ljubljana (Slovenia) - Online
The Jožef Stefan Institute (JSI) will host the COLLOID BIOLOGY WEEK on 9-10 November, 2023: the Innovacion Hub launching and a traning journey will be celebrated at JSI facilities and online (hybrid event).
9th November: Launch of the SURFBIO Innovation Hub
Our Innovation Hub is set to revolutionise the way we understand and harness the potential of the interaction of microbes between inanimate surfaces and alive organisms.
Get ready to embark on a journey into the world of cutting-edge science and innovation at the grand opening event of the “Innovation Hub for Surface and Colloid Biology Research”.
Our Innovation Hub is set to revolutionize the way we understand and harness the potential of the interaction of microbes between inanimate surfaces and alive organisms. Imagine a world where the concept of LEGO microbes unlocks new frontiers across various fields, from biodegradation and bioremediation to food production and safety, antimicrobial activity, sensor technologies, and so much more! Don’t miss the revolution!
Explore the LEGO microbes concept and its versatile applications through innovative technologies. Dive into the world of sensor tech, toxicology, and antimicrobial solutions.
Learn the dynamics of microbe-surface interactions, showing their potential to drive environmentally friendly fertilisation practices and stimulate plant growth.
Food safety & production
Discover the transformative capabilities of Surface and Colloid Biology and how it can improve food safety and revolutionise the food production landscape.
