KU Leuven has been a centre of learning for nearly six centuries, making it one of the oldest and most renowned universities in Europe. The BioTeC+ group has a long standing (>25 years) reputation in two of the main scientific domains within this project: i) microbiology and ii) modelling and optimisation of (bio)chemical processes. KUL brings knowledge and competences on both concepts and techniques from mathematical modelling and systems and control, as well as detailed microbiological/biochemical expertise. The assessment of the antibacterial efficiency of nanocoated materials are the core know-how of the team.
