Biomimicry Global Design Challenge

Biomimicry Global Design Challenge

How can we accelerate the commercial viability of biomimetic solutions to our greatest challenges? The Biomimicry Institute and the Ray C. Anderson Foundation have jointly announced the Biomimicry Global Design Challenge and the creation of a $100,000 Ray C. Anderson “Ray of Hope” Prize designed to bring commercially viable solutions from the design lab to the market.
