“Biomimicry is an approach to innovation that seeks sustainable solutions to human challenges by emulating nature’s time-tested patterns and strategies.”
Interest in bio-inspiration and biomimicry is rising globally, and in Europe in particular. It is widely recognised that bio-inspiration and biomimicry have the potential to support a transition to a circular economy and that is why Utrecht University organises the Global Conference ‘Biomimicry and Bio Inspired Innovation’ in collaboration with the Ministry of Economic Affairs, the BiomimicryNL foundation, the Biomimicry Institute, and the European Biomimicry Alliance.
The conference explores what is needed to generate more impact where it concerns solving major global challenges. How can we regenerate our economies, societies and bio-sphere? The conference is not only a platform for the exchange of ideas between science and business, but aims to actively stimulate and facilitate new collaborations between all participants.
