Bioinspired Design Symposium

Friday | November 18th, 2016 | 1:00 – 4:45 P.M. | Gumwood Room @ The EMU

MISSION STATEMENT

Bioinspired Design is the investigation of principles and functions found in biological organisms and systems and the application of these findings to innovation.  This is a cross-disciplinary, creative area of study that can help us develop a mechanistic understanding of the natural world and can also lead to exciting new technologies.  The cross-disciplinary nature of this area means that people working in disparate departments and research areas across the University of Oregon campus may not be aware of overlapping interests.  The goal of this symposium is to bring faculty together to share research and discuss the possibility of collaborations and new research directions.
