Next Generation BiOactiVe NAnocoatings – NOVA
Scientists and industry unite to develop the next generation of antimicrobial coating technologies to provide safer environments
The transmission of pathogenic microorganisms can happen rapidly with catastrophic and long-term consequences. The growing consequence of antibiotic resistance, and the constant reduction in efficacy of antibiotics is now a global concern. One potential solution to help control the spread of pathogens is a greater emphasis on surface hygiene in almost every facet of daily life. The Next Generation BiOactiVe NAnocoatings (NOVA) project aims to help make this solution a reality. As part of the European Union’s Horizon Europe Framework, the project involves fourteen partners across nine countries from which scientists and industry are collaborating to bring to market highly efficient, environmentally friendly, and stable antimicrobial (antibacterial, antiviral, antifungal) coatings in order to reduce the risk of future microbial infections.
