    Biomimetrics - The Abstraction of Good Design from Nature

    Tuesday 21 October 2014

    11:00 - 16:00

    Bangor Univeristy, Gwynedd

    Biomimetrics is not about copying nature, but learning from it. Approaching a problem from a biomimetrics persepctive can help us solve problems. Biomimetrics examples are all around us, from the familiar such as cats eyes on roads and velcro, to the not so obvious such as passive ventilation of buildings based on air flow through termite mounds and self-cleaning paints based on water repellency observec on lotus flowers. 

    This workshop will highlight some existing UK biomimetric projects, illustrate how biomimetrics can be used in design and problem solving and then go on to discuss and identify possible projects and project partners for future research proposals.
