The goal of the AMBIO project is to develop innovative non-biocidal solutions to the problem of aquatic biofouling, using a range of molecular surface engineering approaches. The project integrates industries, universities and research organisations into a coordinated interdisciplinary programme incorporating all the necessary elements from nanomaterials engineering to biological evaluation and end-user trials.
