ÖPPET SEMINARIUM. How will our understanding of natural principles influence future design, products, and processes? And what will this mean for your discipline or line of work? Bioinspired Forum will focus on fibers at Albanova/KTH and on movement at the Nobel Dynamite Factory, but will also bring up a general discussion on how nature can inspire us.
The field of biomimetics or biomimicry has been around since the beginning of mankind. Lately, thanks to new technologies, this cross-disciplinary research field has entered a dynamic phase and opened up a whole new world of opportunities. Biomimicry is about inspiring new design, developing products, solving engineering challenges and initiate new industrial processes.
I samarbete med Biomime på Kungliga Tekniska Högskolan och Stockholms Stad.
