Impact of surface hygiene on transmissions of infections

Webinar

Ruim een jaar geleden werden we geconfronteerd met een nieuwe pandemie met een enorme impact op ons leven: de mensheid is kwetsbaar voor kleine dingen zoals virussen en bacteriën. Het belang van hygiëne en reinigen is door deze pandemie opnieuw duidelijk geworden.

Binnen het Duits-Nederlandse INTERREG-project AutoProtect, worden nieuwe antibacteriële coatings en reinigingsmethoden ontwikkeld om een ​​betere hygiëne en reinheid van oppervlakken te bereiken voor verschillende toepassingen.

Wij organiseren een reeks van gratis webinars in het Engels om u te informeren over verschillende onderwerpen met betrekking tot antimicrobiële coatings. Het eerste webinar vindt plaats op donderdag 22 april van 14.00 uur tot 16.00 uur (CEST). U kunt zich nu online inschrijven voor dit webinar getiteld “Impact of surface hygiene on
transmissions of infections” (vertaald: “Invloed van oppervlakhygiëne op overdracht van infecties”). 

Heeft u vooraf een specifieke vraag, stuur deze dan vooraf naar Dr. Markus Wehrl via een email aan m.wehrl@wfk.de. We kunnen deze vraag vervolgens als onderdeel meenemen in het webinar.
