The living sphere as a model





Observing and understanding nature better to replicate its genius... This is not a new idea but the concept of bio-inspiration now appears to be more than ever a major trend for innovation. In health, robotics, ecology, chemistry, engineering sciences, etc., CNRS researchers will show you their research and its applications which were inspired by nature. Welcome to the bio-inspired world!
