Jérémy Gobé's work reflects a vision of art "in life". He encounters workers without works and materials without workers, objects without use and unshaped works.

In the course of his exhibitions in France (Palais de Tokyo, CENTQUATRE-Paris, Fondation Bullukian, etc.) and internationally (Bass Museum Miami, Hangzu China Museum, Shanghai Yuz Museum, etc.), his works propose a reconnection with nature.

Following the example of Auguste Rodin: "an art that has life does not reproduce the past, it continues it", Jérémy Gobé, inspired by ancient know-how, imagines global solutions to contemporary problems.

Since 2017 he has created Artefact Coralan art science industry project to save the coral reefs.

Participation in Biomim'expo 2020 :

Jérémy Gobé will be pleased to come and talk about his career, his passions, his commitments and his projects during a segment of the "Just like at home.

2pm - 2.30pm JOB ... "ARTIST - CORAL BREEDER. What is the relationship between art, science, industry and ecology? How does an artist who is sensitive to objects, raw materials and industry, and who is used to prestigious exhibition halls in France and around the world, find himself stunned one day by the resemblance between the pattern of a lace from Le Puy-en-Velay and the geometry of coral? To finally become an inventor-starter to save the coral reefs by developing coral stakes?

Creator of biosourced 100% molecules of interest for the cosmetics and fine chemicals sectors

After 15 years of research in ecological chemistry within the ChimEco laboratory, Prof. Claude Grison joined forces with Technofounders to create BioInspir in 2020, with the aim of commercialising the production of biosourced and natural molecules for the cosmetics and fine chemicals sectors.

BioInspir selects certain plant species capable of biosorbing metals contained in natural or industrial effluents. The use of these plants makes it possible to create filters to capture the metals, and from these, to design ecocatalysts used for the soft synthesis of high added value products.

Today, the company has a library of molecules that evolves day by day. New molecules are developed every week, either on a contract basis for clients or on molecules with a high stake for numerous companies.

After securing nearly €1 million in funding in September 2020, BioInspir is developing its molecule library and preparing to scale up to kilo-lab size.

Press release:

BIOINSPIR accelerates its growth and secures nearly €1 million in financingMontpellier, 9 September 2020 - The result of 15 years of research by Claude Grison and the ChimEco laboratory, Bioinspir synthesises molecules for fine chemistry from its unique ecocatalysis platform. Only a few months after its creation, the deeptech start-up has secured nearly €1 million in funding to support its first commercial phase. In recent weeks, the start-up has completed a financing round with TechnoFounders Participations, was a winner of the i-Nov innovation competition and was awarded the French Tech Emergence grant.

LES ECHOS / SEPT 2020 / Bioinspir invents a plant filter to clean up contaminated water

A spin-off from the ChimEco laboratory at the University of Montpellier, the start-up Bioinspir has developed a plant-based filter to capture metals in polluted water. Designed from invasive aquatic plants, it can then be reused for other applications. Discussions are underway with chemical companies. Suite.

The National Centre for Scientific Research is one of the most renowned public research institutions in the world. For more than 80 years, it has met the requirement of excellence in its recruitment and has developed multi and interdisciplinary research throughout the country, in Europe and internationally. Oriented towards the common good, it contributes to France's scientific, economic, social and cultural progress. The CNRS is above all 32,000 men and women and 200 professions. Its 1,000 laboratories, most of which are shared with universities, schools and other research organisations, employ more than 120,000 people; they advance knowledge by exploring life, matter, the universe and the functioning of human societies. The close link between its research activities and their transfer to society makes it a key player in innovation today. The partnership with companies is the basis of its development policy. This is achieved through more than 150 joint structures with industrial players and the creation of around one hundred start-ups each year, demonstrating the economic potential of its research work. CNRS makes research work and data accessible; this knowledge sharing targets different audiences: scientific communities, media, decision-makers, economic players and the general public.

The CNRS is multidisciplinary and covers all scientific fields: human and social sciences, biology, nuclear and particle physics, information sciences, engineering and systems sciences, physics, mathematics, chemistry, earth and universe sciences, ecology and the environment.

Imitation of structures, properties, processes and interactions developed by biological entities, achievements inspired by nature are increasingly widespread in many fields of research and innovation. The CNRS Institute of Engineering and Systems Sciences has thus chosen Nature-inspired Engineering as its priority scientific theme for 2020. Researchers from its laboratories will show at Biomimexpo how models in nature can be a factor of inspiration for finding engineering solutions to an identified and formalised scientific and/or technological problem.

ALPHANOV is the New Aquitaine Technology Resource Centre specialising in optics and photonics.

We have been developing surface functionalization processes based on the fabrication of bio-inspired nanostructures by laser machining and texturing for several years. We are able to modify the surfaces of various materials (metals, plastics, glasses, crystals) to modify their optical reflectivity properties (from black to a holographic effect), bio-contamination, wettability or to improve their tribological performance.

Technological support :

From setting up collaborative projects to technological support for company creation, ALPhANOV assists you in your industrial projects.

Thanks to close relationships with research laboratories (LOMA, CELIA, LP2N, IMS, Trèfle, XLIM ...) and local photonic companies, ALPhANOV is involved throughout the innovation process:

  • Setting up collaborative projects: search for academic or industrial partners, consortium organisation, financial engineering.
  • Industrialization : ALPhANOV provides its partners with engineering skills to help them in the design and production phases of industrial products.
  • Starting a business : ALPhANOV provides entrepreneurs with a professional and technological environment in which to share ideas and solutions, validate concepts and develop prototypes.

ALPhANOV works in perfect synergy with other regional and national industrial development support actors:

  • the ALPHA - Route des Lasers & des Hyperfréquences competitiveness cluster;
  • Aquitaine's technology parks, which provide strategic support for business creation, in particular Bordeaux Unitec;
  • the SEML Route des Lasers capable of meeting the real estate needs specific to the sector;
  • Aquitaine Science Transfert is responsible for technology transfer between laboratories and industry;
  • the ministry of research ;
  • Bpifrance;
  • the Regional Council of New Aquitaine and all the local authorities involved in the financing of industrial projects.
