      Let’s talk about coatings!

      Triple-A-COAT is interested to talk with potential users of its sustainable coatings technology! As part of a “co-creation” process, it is important for researchers to learn about the needs and priorities of users of their technology. The antimicrobial, antifungal and antiviral coatings we are developing in Triple-A-COAT will be first applied in public transport, and a bus manufacturer Van Hool is a partner in the consortium. The …
