Learning from nature: where science meets sustainability

Bio inspired design and science are used for innovations that support a transition to a sustainable, circular economy. The Master’s programme Bio Inspired Innovation (BII) offers a unique blend of knowledge and skill training that will support the search for and development of circular business-models and bio inspired research & innovations.

Nature has evolved solutions for the societal challenges we face. BII is aimed at students with a Bachelor’s degree in the (Life) Sciences who want to innovate services, products and production systems and are interested in using bio inspired design and science. You can become the biologist at the design table and facilitate innovations that take their lessons from nature. You will become a professional that contributes to the transition to a circular economy with Bio Inspired Innovations.

Innovation, research and design

This Master’s programme builds on the excellent research at the Faculty of Science and links research findings to solve societal and business challenges.

The first year is research based, while the second year focuses on the use of research knowledge in innovation. In the first year you will be part of an advanced research environment linking to your area of expertise (major research project). You learn to set up and execute research and discuss and report its outcomes. Moreover you will start to explore and learn about multi-disciplinary innovation, collaborative business modelling and design. You will attend seminars and workshops, some of which you will organise yourself, that allow you to prepare yourself for the second year.

In the second year you will get in depth knowledge of Biomimicry and other design and innovation methods through courses and an internship.

Career Prospects:

This Master’s programme prepares you to become a highly qualified professional, who is able to function in an academic, business or other organisational environment. You will be a change-agent and resource professional for organizations that aim to be part of a sustainable society with guaranteed food supply. We actively support your efforts to become a bio inspired circular economy expert, innovator entrepreneur, scientist or consultant.

ACADEMIC CAREERS

George Whiteside’s, a biochemist, indicates that bio-inspiration opens up the doors to an academic career across disciplines. This new interdisciplinary field of science is expected to result in breakthrough discoveries that are of use to business and society in the short and long term.

PROFESSIONAL CAREERS

Bio Inspired Innovation trains you to apply and connect bio inspired research to (non-) governmental organizations and/or businesses. Graduates will be employed by organizations ranging from the WWF to a ministry. Possible jobs include working as a circular economy consultant at Royal Harkening or as a bio inspired product developer and designer at Lune.
