Advancing Antimicrobial Nanocoating Technologies. June 2024, Cyprus

The STOP project, together with other projects working on the same topic (funded as part of the Horizon Europe call HORIZON-CL4-2021-RESILIENCE-01-20 – Antimicrobial, Antiviral, and Antifungal Nanocoatings (RIA)) co-hosted a ‘Community Day’ with the title “Advancing Antimicrobial Nanocoating Technologies” as part of the 2024 Materials Week conference which took place on Cyprus 17th-21st June 2024.

This provided a valuable opportunity for the projects and interested scientists and companies to exchange ideas related to the development of novel antimicrobial materials and coatings, about the eventual scale-up and commercialisation of such materials and coatings, and about methods to minimise the environmental impact and maximise the sustainability of the new materials.

Five of the eight projects funded in the same call were represented at the meeting.
