Integration of Biological Principles in Industry 4.0
Biological transformation is the transfer of principles of natural systems to technical materials, structures and processes. Its goal is to achieve sustainable value creation.
Essential concepts of biological transformation are inspiration (learning by observing nature for the adaptation of technology), integration (symbiosis of technical systems based on biological models) and interaction (interweaving of nature and technology).
The resulting new value creation must be understood systemically. The BioFusion 4.0 researchers are exploring the interdependencies between the principles of biological transformation and their interactions with production, services and work.
