PhD Paul Denissen from the Novel Aerospace Materials group won the creativity award for the best poster presentation at the 12th Coatings Science International 2016 conference (CoSi conference). The CoSi conference is the leading European conference on coatings science and technology, targeted at both industry and academia. Paul’s presentation on corrosion protection of aircraft metallic structures using algae exoskeletons was awarded by the organizing committee consisting of leading scientific and industrial experts in the field of coatings.
The innovative research work on algae for corrosion protection performed at NovAM was also recently presented at the ‘teaser’ DIG-it! Research Exhibition at the International Festival of Technology in Delft.
We congratulate Paul Denissen and his supervisor Santiago Garcia with this honour.
