• Biomimicry (bio = life, mimesis = imitate) is an innovation strategy which consists in being inspired by living organisms to develop technologies and services towards more sobriety, efficiency and sustainability
• Biological composites (like wood, bone and abalone shell) present a variety of properties (strength, lightness, colour, stimuli-responsive …) despite their simple composition. Using only few chemical elements results in complete recyclable and biodegradable materials.
• Source of inspiration for eco-materials and composites for a variety of applications (transports, sports, equipment, building …)

The challenges of the deployment of biomimicry today lie in overcoming specific cases, the construction of generic methodologies, the wider appropriation of this approach by entrepreneurs, industrialists, public authorities, but also by civil society stakeholders. (citizens, consumers, etc.).
The CEEBIOS is positioned as a catalyst for the wealth of national skills in the academic world, education and industrial R&D around biomimicry. Two main working groups dedicated to construction and materials support the emergence of innovative and collaborative industrial projects.
