Welcome to the second edition of the Microbial Control Executive Council (MCEC) Newsletter.
First of all, I would like to introduce myself. My name is Michael Schäfer and I had the pleasure to take over the position of MCEC Chairman a few weeks ago.
On behalf of the MCEC, I would like to thank you for signing up to receive our newsletter. Over the past few months we have achieved an average growth rate of over 30% per month. Many thanks for your interest in our activities!
Last autumn, we focused on providing more information on the breadth of microbial control applications, from hand hygiene and the prevention of corrosion in the maritime sector to the benefits for food production (both dairy and meat). We showcased examples that highlight the diversity of applications that would be less safe without the benefits provided by the microbial control sector and the innovations it strives to achieve.
In 2017, we travel back in time. Updated content on our website shares information on benefits brought by microbial technologies throughout history, including applications that have had a life changing impact on humanity’s health and wellbeing. However, looking back does not mean we forget about the future. 2017 will also give us more opportunities to explore the innovation potential of microbial control. The European Coatings Show, held in Nuremberg in April, is such an opportunity.
If we have sparked your interest, stay tuned! Our Newsletter comes out three times a year. Meanwhile, if you’d like to stay updated on a more regular basis, I invite you to follow up on our LinkedIn page and visit the website.
Michael Schäfer, MCEC Chairman
