Digital and biological transformation as convergent processes

The use of biological models when designing technological developments, with the aim of creating particularly innovative products and sustainable value, is summarized today under the term “biological transformation”. It leads to highly functional products that not only have impressive properties but also require fewer resources in their manufacture and use. Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft is a key player in the research being done in this field.

The Fraunhofer Center for Maritime Logistics and Services CML and an international network of partners want to be the first to tidy up this mess with a project called SeaClear. An interview with project managers Johannes Oeffner and Cosmin Delea follows.
