If you have an interesting in doing a specific activity or a number of activities with other EBNet members, we can provide funding for a Working Group. See the application form in our funding section.
Here are our current working groups, with more to follow. If you are interested in joining any of the working groups, contact EBNet or the working group leader.
- Aerobic granulation processes – Led by Dr Yongqiang Liu, University of Southampton. Aerobic granules technology is still relatively novel, with some fundamental knowledge gaps preventing its wider adoption and realisation of its numerous advantages in wastewater treatment. This working group aims to bring forward this technology with a number of directed activities.
- Environmental Sensors and Wastewater Surveillance – Led by Dr Zhugen Yang, Cranfield University and Dr Martin Spurr, Newcastle University. The group aims to gather a multidisciplinary group of researchers with interests in new environmental sensors development. Focus areas include wastewater surveillance (including wastewater epidemiology), water, air, soil, food, healthcare, biosecurity and beyond.
- Bioinformatics Training for Microbial Environmental Biotechnologies – Led by Professor James Chong, University of York. The group will focus on the development of online resources for researchers wishing to gain and develop skills in the analysis and visualisation of ‘omics datasets.
