ASU’s Growing Biomimicry Community

At ASU, the Biomimicry Center is currently financially supported by the Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts, College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, School of Sustainability, W. P. Carey School of Business, School of Life Sciences, and the Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering, as well as the Office of the Provost and the Office of Knowledge and Enterprise Development.

The Biomimicry Center works with these schools to integrate biomimicry into existing courses and degrees, including minors and concentrations.

The Center also strives to embed entrepreneurial opportunities in every educational and research endeavor. To this end the center coordinates with entrepreneurship programs at ASU, including the Center for Entrepreneurship and Edson Student Entrepreneurship Initiative. And through partnerships with Biomimicry 3.8 clients, like ESRI or the Sustainable Packaging Coalition, the center aims to bring ASU students and researchers to the design table to solve business and government challenges.

The Biomimicry Center welcomes the support and collaboration of other schools and initiatives at ASU in the form of joint grant or coursework development, sponsored teaching or research assistants, work study students and funding, and in-kind or direct cash contributions.
