The inaugural World Biomimetic Challenges and Awards aim to strengthen an emergent field and to connect outstanding projects from near and far. WBCA will recognise projects in prototype, final development, or deployment, which are based on a concept, technology, product, service or process intended to meet a real-world challenge.
Entry projects must exhibit a connection between a biological mechanism, process, pattern and/or system and the final solution developed.
WBCA’s Advisory Committee is an international network of recognised biomimetics and innovation professionals who will select the finalists from which those attending the World Biomimetic Challenges & Awards conferences will select the winners.
I am delighted to have been invited to become an Honorary member of the WBCA Advisory Committee, and look forward to joining peers including Prof. Nel Hofstra of Erasmus University Rotterdam, Dr. Jordi Pigem of University of Barcelona, Prof. Stefano Mancuso of University of Florence, Dr. Elisabet Sahtouris of the World Business Academy, Assoc. Prof. Carlos Alberto Montana Hoyos of University of Canberra, and Dr. Daniel Christian Wahl in selecting the challenges and awards’ finalists.
