EPFL Bioinspired Platform is a multidisciplinary community of 30 laboratories that use remarkable properties of living organisms to solve real world challenges. From solar cells that function like photosynthetic leafs, to self-healing industrial materials, insect inspired drones and amoeba inspired computing, our research focuses on bio-inspired materials, robotics, computing, energy, waste management and health. Nature selected solution are especially interesting for us because all living organism operate under high material and energy constrains leading to strategies with maximal efficiency and high optimization that are sustainable by definition. In parallel, billions of years of fine tuning under changing environmental conditions have made these solutions adaptable, locally attuned and self-maintained.
