The “Surface Transfer of Pathogens” project formally started on 1st September 2022. Press releases from 5th October describe the project’s plans in English and in German. The project will develop antimicrobial surfaces to reduce the spread of infections, for example through buttons and handholds used in public transport, or door handles in nursing homes.
Handholds in a bus may be used by dozens of people each day, potentially spreading infection. Photo by Joshua Fernandez on Unsplash
