Biomimetics - unlocking access of nature to opportunities in health

Reference number 2018-04863
Coordinator Karolinska Institutet - Institutionen för klinisk vetenskap, intervention och teknik
Funding from Vinnova SEK 200 000
Project duration September 2019 - September 2019
Status Ongoing

Purpose and goal

Learning from innovations in nature to make everyone healthier: emphasis on nature’s designs and methods for biomedical research. Work according to “the Medicii effect” will facilitate innovative thinking and create interactions between different disciplines.

Expected results and effects

Initiate interactions and collaboration between researchers within different disciplines (such as human medicine, basic research, veterinarian medicine, zoology, ecology, botany, biology) and discuss how biomimetic research can improve future applications and designs for sustainable development of a healthier world.

Planned approach and implementation

2.5 days of Nobel conference with lectures of internationally leading researchers within different disciplines followed by an interactive "the Medici" workshop according to the concept "diversity drives innovation".
