Biological Transformation of Manufacturing

Session 4 – Sustainability and Resilience – what is the impact on society and technological systems?

Biological Transformation has the potential to drive new solutions for pressing ecological and societal challenges. How can we leverage this potential for more effective environmental protection, a more sustainable use of natural resources and how can systems respond appropriately to both disturbances and opportunities? At the same time, the growing convergence of nature and technology entails profound implications for both individuals and society as a whole. Biological Transformation will, for instance, radically change the human-machine interface and redefine our understanding of work. How do we design the Biological Transformation of manufacturing in a socially beneficial way?
