BIO-Humidur: Exploring the physical and chemical behaviour of symbiotic bacteria on sponges as knowledge platform (IWTOO16)

The overall aim of this project is to acquire basic knowledge about anti-fouling and anticorrosive properties of symbiotic bacteria in sponges, as well as the impact of the presence of these bacteria on the physicochemical behavior of the coating. This fundamentally scientificknowledge platform will serve as the basis for the development of a cost-effective single-layer biomimeticHumidur.i: Coating with combined anti-fouling and anti-corrosion properties.
