How biomimicry can lead to innovative and resilient business solutions
The vision of the EHL Institute of Nutrition R&D is to apply nature-inspired designs to tackle nutrition challenges. Its main model when conducting prototyping, user testing activities and research on food and nutrition-related topics is nature. Biomimicry is an approach to innovation that seeks solutions to human challenges by emulating nature’s time-tested patterns and strategies. In essence, we can learn important lessons of history from nature to help us develop a regenerative and resilient socioeconomic approach based on systems thinking and sustainability to ensure future generations' wellbeing and survival.
