Follow-up of the Biomimicry lecture on Nov. 10th

Posted by Alicia Gayout (Admin) Nov 13, 2014 Posted in Biomimicry: Innovation Inspired by Nature


Last Monday, we had the pleasure to welcome certified biomimicry professionals Alessandro Bianciardi and Patrick Baumann for a lecture on biomimicry. Their inspirational talk introduced not only the concept of biomimicry but also the rigorous innovation process and the guidelines (the so-called "Life's principles") that empower innovators to design bio-inspired and sustainable solutions. They also presented several fascinating examples at all levels (shape, process, ecosystem) including some from their own work (how to make desalination more sustainable and how to harvest energy with a backpack). Part of their support can be found below.

The Biomimicry@EPFL team warmly thanks the speakers, the audience, Mediacom for the promotion of the event and ENAC for funding the friendly cocktail that enabled further discussion between the speakers and the students.

We hope that this lecture provided you with great inspiration for the Fusebox challenge!
