The Biomimicry Center

Biomimicry studies have been a part of ASU’s research portfolio for years. Whether developing bio-inspired materials for modern use or converting sunlight into energy by replicating photosynthesis in the lab, ASU researchers are at the leading edge of the field.

Founded in 2015, The Biomimicry Center's mission is to enhance academia’s ability to address sustainability challenges using strategies inspired by natural systems. The center is a joint effort between Arizona State University and Biomimicry 3.8. Working to advance research, as well as education in biomimicry, the center offers two online programs: a masters in biommimicry and a graduate certificate in biomimicry.

Biomimicry thinking is a skill set that will allow us to contribute to solutions designed to fit within their ecosytems. And as a methodology for sustainable design, systems-thinking, creativity and interdisciplinary collaboration, these skills will prepare students for a 21st century career.
