Final Report - AMBIO (Advanced nanostructured surfaces for the control of biofouling)

Project ID: 11827
Funded under: FP6-NMP

Abstract

This is the final report for the 'Advanced Nanostructured Surfaces for the Control of Biofouling' (AMBIO) which is an R&D Integrated Project funded by the European Commission under its Sixth Framework Programme. Biofouling is the colonisation of submerged surfaces by unwanted organisms such as bacteria, barnacles and algae, and has detrimental effects on shipping and leisure vessels, heat exchangers, oceanographic sensors and aquaculture systems.

The report details how the project was executed, achievements made over the years and the impacts the project has had on industry and research institutions. In particular, AMBIO partners have published extensively in international refereed journals. The papers have been subjected to a simple bibliometric analysis as a measure of impact. The analysis took account of 70 publications in which AMBIO has been acknowledged.
