MAP professors and graduates involved in new Bavarian project assossiation to develop environmentally conscious technology

In many areas of society unsustainable products and processes dominate, although the protection of the environment is becoming increasingly important. Technology and innovation are central fields of action that can be tackled. In this context, a new Bavarian project association is developing environmentally conscious technology inspired by nature. The project group “BayBionik – From Nature to Technology” bundles the competencies of five Bavarian universities and explores how biological models can be used for technical innovation. Six research projects as well as one co-ordination and one accompanying project will be funded by the Bavarian State Ministry of the Environment and Consumer Protection with approximately € 1.8 million over the next three years.

MAP Chair Prof. Nicolas Vogel, MAP lecturer Prof. Stephan Wolf and MAP graduates are involved in this project group.
