The ‘Biomimicry in the Nordic Countries’ working paper reports on Nordic forerunners in biomimicry. Biomimicry is “a discipline that takes inspiration from nature to develop sustainable solutions to many design challenges that our civilization is grappling on a daily basis. These challenges span from product design, mechanical engineering, medicine, through to agriculture, business and even architecture”. Within Finland, the report highlights the materials development and molecular biomimetic research of the cross-disciplinary Centre of Excellence in Molecular Engineering of Biosynthetic Hybrid Materials Research (HYBER) at Aalto University and VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland. The report was commissioned by the Nordic Council of Ministers Working Group for Sustainable Consumption and Production.
