Founded in January 2018, the Biomimetic Sciences Institute (BSI) is a non-profit foundation working in the emerging field of biomimetics.
Biomimicry encourages research into innovative solutions for vital problems through the observation of functions that create processes and structures with which nature has proven itself in the course of evolution. Inspired by organicistic optimization, we can create designs and produce materials as well as products, that are adapted to our needs.
Biomimetic behaviour contributes to making possible innovative solutions and, at the same time, provides affordable future ideas. It reconciles the advances of science and technology with human progress, facilitating the understanding of vital ecosystems and the relationships between their elements, creating awareness of coexisting forms of life
The biomimetic inspiration in innovation projects highlights the commitment of entrepreneurship to sustainability. Within their actions they e assumea perspective that takes the complex interrelationships that exist between various ecosystems into account andhence promote hybridization.
The BSI ensures the biomimetic quality of these actions by providing its knowledge and advice on scientific research and technological development projects and furthermore by giving value to its relationship with the human factor.
The BSI promotes the vision of nature as a guide and mentor for building a future based on sustainable progress andbased on three basic principles:
- Work, free from anthropocentrism, in pursuit of species consciousness.
- Promotion of bio-inspired research from nature.
- Facilitation and accreditation of the idea, design and development of biomimetic solutions.
