EPFL bioinspired
EPFL’s Bioinspired Projects Platform assembles research laboratories and educational initiatives that use remarkable properties of living organisms to solve real world challenges.

Bio or nature inspired innovation is an approach that seeks solutions to human challenges within the natural world. It is a scientific approach based on mathematics, physics and chemistry of life. Its solutions are the result of 3.8 billion years of evolutionary selection and fine tuning and represent the most advanced, creative and sustainable solution to conditions on planet Earth. Bioinspired thinking draws upon that knowledge in order to create disruptive innovation for cleaner and greener future.
