Biomimetic Summit 2016

Start: 
Wed, 2016/10/26 - Fri, 2016/10/28
Location: 
Barcelona

Cancelled

This Biomimetic Summit was original scheduled for 2015 but the organizers decided to redefine the concept and move it to 2016. 

We understand Biomimetics as the process by which behavioral models present in nature are investigated and applied in the development of new products and solutions to provide innovation and value to companies and to society while respecting our limited natural resources.

The Biomimetic Summit is the meeting point for institutions, research centers, universities, companies, designers, managers, and thought leaders to share ideas, discuss about tendencies and obtain solutions and transversal models of economic impact, facilitating cross innovation between the different disciplines.

GOALS

Transmit the knowledge imparted by experts on the current implantation of Biomimetics worldwide through:

• Interventions by sector leaders.

• Presentation of ongoing Research and Developments focused on Manufacturing and Product Design.

• Workshops and group discussions about success stories of products and solutions already in the market.

• “One to one” demonstrations in the Business Connect area to learn about the most advanced ideas and innovations.

• Networking platform to identify synergies between researchers and the industry.

• Provide delegates with the necessary tools to reorientate their business and production models to a new model based on nature-inspired innovation.

Biomimetic Summit Barcelona 2016 Cancelled

It is with great regret that we need to inform all interested parties the cancellation of Biomimetic Summit 2016. During the preparation of the Summit we have received enormous amounts of positive feedback and interest to participate. Unfortunately the event did not attract the required corporate sponsorship to make the organization economically feasible.

The past years have shown as that there exists a huge interest to biomimicry but at the same time the novelty of the field clearly limits the interest of industry.

As the purpose of the Biomimetic Summit was to create a link between research and academic institutions with the manufacturing industry it is clear that the lack of support from corporate collaborators requires rethinking the entire concept and the event objectives.

We are convinced that the main reason behind the difficulties is simply the lack of maturity in perceiving biomimicry as a true added value for business.

We would like to thank and sincerely apologize to everyone involved and obviously the ones wanting to participate. We are currently working on improving the focus of the event and hopefully in the near future we can offer you something very interesting.

Kindest Regards,

The Biomimetic Summit Organizing Committee
