Biological Transformation of Manufacturing

Session 3 – Future Production Technologies and Processes – are boundaries fading?

Biological Transformation of manufacturing can be realized on multiple levels. Among them is the imitation of phenomena found in nature as realized in biomimesis, but also the cooperation between technical and natural processes such as the integration of biotechnology in traditional realms of innovation. Furthermore, biological, technical and informational elements can merge together in order to create totally novel, self-sufficient technologies and structures. Who is currently leading the developments in Biological Transformation and what technologies are driving the revolution in industrial production? What is the potential of ‘biology by design’ to create sustainable solutions in production and what changes are necessary to produce bio-intelligent systems like co-processors made of biological neurons?
