Antibacterial tiles for healthy living
Stand number: 14
Networking in research through a COST Action has led to the development and commercialisation of environmentally friendly antibacterial tiles that only require indoor light to kill pathogens such as E.coli. They target Health Care Acquired Infection (HCAI), which affects the lives of millions of people and causes 37,000 deaths across the EU annually.
This exhibit shows how EU funding for networking in science brought together leading companies, research centres and universities, enhancing Europe’s innovation and creating jobs. Visit us and discover how VitrA’s antibacterial bathroom tiles can improve our lives!
