Learning from nature: Where Science meets Sustainability
We look at evolution in Nature to find solutions for the societal challenges we face. Bio-inspired innovation (BII) is aimed at students with a Bachelor's degree in the Life Sciences who are interested in using bio-inspired design and science and want to innovate services, products and production systems. With this programme you are equipped for a position in which you contribute to the transition to a circular economy with Bio Inspired Innovations.
This Master's programme equips you with research, design, and collaborative skills that will make you a Bio Inspired expert. BII builds on the excellent research at the Faculty of Science and links research findings to solve societal and business challenges.
The first year of the programme you learn to set up and execute research and discuss and report its outcomes. In the second year you will combine innovation, research, and design. You will develop design and innovation skills to help you translate key scientific insights into 'game-changers' for a sustainable, circular economy. A network of organisations and companies will enable you to find an internship of your interest.
Applicants are expected to hold one of the following degrees:- A BSc degree in Life Sciences (Biology, Molecular Life Sciences, Biomedical Sciences, Pharmacy) or an equivalent qualification- A BSc degree in Natural Sciences or Liberal Arts & Sciences with a science profile and proven interest in Biology
