Innovation is only true innovation if it
brings sustainable change
to the world.
Otherwise it is just the same
in new shoes.

Through Biomimicry, we can learn from nature’s inventions to design products, revolutionise our industrial and business processes, change social and economic systems, and shape the world we want to live in.

The Biomimicry Academy combines the fields of science and design with principles from Circular Economy. The result is our Bioinspired Circular Innovation education programme, the first of its kind in Europe, in which you’ll learn how to adapt nature’s lessons to solve your challenges.

  • Museum fuer Naturkunde Berlin, Biomimicry Academy
    A central partner of Biomimicry Germany e.V. and the Biomimicry Academy is the Natural History Museum in Berlin (Museum für Naturkunde) and the Leibniz Institute for Evolution and Biodiversity Science Discovering. For year, public formats have been taking place in the impressive exhibition to bring a hands-on experience of nature in the middle of the urban setting of Berlin.

  • Biomimicry Workshop, Biomimicry Academy
    Biomimicry is a science and an art, a method and a mindset, a theoretical framework and a practical process. Our Workshops are hands-on, the learning is based on experience over lecturing and founded on a sound didactic background.
  • Kromlauer Park, Biomimicry Academy
    Germany has a plethora of natural and cultural heritage, like the famous bridge in Kromlauer Park, Saxony. Due to its history, Eastern Germany has wide stretches of almost untouched nature, such as the Green Band along the line where the two Germany states where seperated until 1989.

  • Bee Insect, Biomimicry Academy
    “If the bee disappeared off the surface of the globe then man would only have four years of life left", Prof. Albert Einstein said. Fact is that we see a rapid decline in the insect population, as a recent German review found (PNAS 2017). Bees die due to parasites, poison and human selection. However, the significance for the ecosystem of this group within the arthropod phylum is far from being understood completely. Biodiversity is more than a nice-to-have or even an asset, it is essential for the survival of all species, including the human. (Image courtesy of Kat Jayne)
  • Students at an ccademic conference, Biomimicry Academy
    Biomimicry Germany e.V. and the European Biomimicry Alliance work in public education and lighthouse projects to spread and promote Nature-inspired problem solving. The organisations join forces with public, academic and political institutions all across Europe and the world to use synergies. A major aspect is education of students and future professionals.

  • Airbus Airplan Bionik, Biomimicry Academy, Johannes Fuchs, phi360
    "Bionik" is technical Biomimicry in German academia, like the structural composition of the Airbus plane corpus. It takes inspiration from biological shapes and processes, and translates it to technological high-end inventions. While this approach is highly encouraged, the meaningful use of nature's time-tested solutions requires a systemic, wholesome understanding of relationships and interdependencies. Only sustainable innovations are true innovations that bring lasting change. (Graphic courtesy by Johannes Fuchs and phi360)

  • Brain Network, Biomimicry Academy, Johannes Fuchs, phi360
    The human brain is considered to be the most advanced network on earth. It has a multi-layer functionality that is constantly altered to adapt to changing conditions. Those principles can be translated to build technological or human networks, restructure organisations and build more effective communication pathways.
