On June 1 a new Biomimetics group joined the ESRIG institute.
The Biomimetics group studies how organisms evolved to function successfully in their complex environments as inspiration to improve technology and engineering design. Their focus is primarily, but not exclusively, on aquatic and aerial behaviours including feeding, swimming and flight.
Informed by scientific findings, they develop new biomimetic and bioinspired solutions for engineering and societal challenges. The technological focus is on energy harvesting, energy use efficiency, environmental cleanup and autonomous robotics. To accomplish these research and innovation goals and translate their findings to society, the group collaborates with leading scientists, engineers and companies locally, nationally and globally.
To engage students as well as the general public, the group offers exciting research experiences, organizes national outreach projects and helps the international media disseminate our discoveries and innovations.
