Engineered by nature

The Biomimetx company, a spin-off of the Faculty of Sciences, the Faculty of Dental Medicine and the National Institute of Agricultural and Veterinary Research of Lisbon, was created during the participation in COHiTEC 2013, a program to support the valuation of the knowledge produced in national R&D institutions.
Biomimetx has developed a biocide that addresses the global problem of biofouling, which consists of the natural mechanism of adhesion of organisms to any surface that is placed in water. This phenomenon is a problem worldwide, more specifically in the area of maritime activities.
