In 3.8 bio years of R&D, nature developed solutions that are by default effective, efficient, resilient, adaptive and sustainable. Biomimicry is the process how we can harness this wisdom for products, services, processes or systems change.


Learn how nature cooperates. Use the unique bioinspired process for collaboration-driven project incubation.

On the COBIOM platform of the Biomimicry community, collaboration wins over competition: You collaborate on digital whiteboards, share your input and knowledge and score points every time you share and every time your knowledge is used! Even across teams.

We see this kind of collaboration as the future of challenges and economy.
