Montana State University
Special invitation: Biofilm Science & Technology Meeting

CBE workshop

CBE Industrial Associates meetings are held twice each year at Montana State University in Bozeman, Montana. We invite interested companies to attend one of these meetings to preview the Industrial Associates program prior to becoming a member. The meetings are key to Industrial Associates’ interaction with the CBE researchers and students. The meeting agendas include:

  • Detailed, up-to-date, reporting of CBE projects and research strategy (specific industry sponsored projects may be excluded depending on the status of the project). Reporting includes written summaries, posters and presentations on the research.

  • Opportunities for the Industrial Associate members to provide written and oral guidance on the CBE research, education and industrial programs.

  • Opportunities for in-depth one-on-one or small group meetings with CBE researchers and students to focus on specific research, application and educational needs of the Industrial Associate.

  • Workshops on CBE biofilm analytical methods. Workshops include hands-on laboratory instruction (above) as well as presentations and materials.
