Brown Bag - Biologically Inspired Design for Industry: An Evolving Practice

The Center for Biologically Inspired Design (CBID) at Georgia Tech, in combination with Kimberly-Clark Corporation, recently completed two biologically inspired design projects. These projects successfully generated two new active research lines for improving product performance. Join  Michael Helms, PhD, from Georgia Tech, and Marsha Forthofer, Kimberly-Clark, to learn more about the projects and discuss the conditions that enabled (and inhibited) the success of the projects including:
•    best-practice biologically inspired design processes
•    expectation setting across different design domains
•    design team knowledge and skill requirements
•     translating biological concepts into actionable, funded research
