e.biofilm — Group of Excellence on Engineered Biofilms

ERA Chair on Engineered Biofilms

The e.Biofilm project aims at innovation in biofilm control. For that, we will explore control mechanisms that are based on imaging and molecular characterization of the complex ecology.

About our Project

Unveiling Our Vision: Exploring the Essence of Our Project


Understanding the mechanisms of biofilm development can lead to improved control strategies and new treatments for biofilm-related infections and industrial issues.


To set-up a group of excellence on engineered Biofilms at the Faculty of Engineering of the University of Porto, building upon the expertise of the ERA Chair Holder Darla Goeres (Center for Biofilm Engineering of Montana State University).

Expected impact

Established links with the scientific community, industry, regulatory entities and the public in general in the European Research Area:

  • Bringing research excellence in engineered biofilms

  • Thriving educational and training program

  • Promoting innovation
