In this course, you will learn how to design a system using bio-inspired design methods & techniques.
 You will receive workshops to practice the use of bio-inspired techniques and apply these to a specific design case.
The design can address different system-levels:
-  A macro-system, like a new ‘foodforest’ embedded in a network, and supported by suggestions for new business models.
- A meso system, where the focus is on the production of goods and services, or
- A micro-system of, for instance, interacting bacteria that regenerate soils.
