16:15 - 17:30 [ FROM RESEARCH TO APPLICATIONS: WHEN BIOMIMETICS CHANGES THE GAME
New bio-inspired applications are emerging every day. Factors such as the urgency of the issues at stake, new expectations, scientific factors (new knowledge, new tools, new approaches, etc.), economic factors (the value of deep tech innovations, the value of alternative approaches, the benefits of processes or uses, etc.) and cultural factors (multidisciplinarity, a change in outlook, academic and semantic bridges, etc.) are all conducive to the emergence of a new generation of innovations and players.

In 30-minute segments, researchers and entrepreneurs will give demonstrations and manoeuvres on an open stage set up at the heart of the event.
In a small lounge set up "as if at home", informal and intimate discussions with researchers, lab directors, company managers, teachers, designers, architects ... to exchange and discover jobs and functions. Every 30′, a man or a woman faces you.
The pitch: at the end of a family lunch, a niece or a cousin in the first year of secondary school who is wondering about his future takes you aside, he knows more or less where you work but doesn't really have a precise idea, and as he was told on the way here "but if you do, take advantage of it to ask him, he'll be there", he takes the plunge. You are both sitting down, and not really knowing where to start, he asks you "but by the way, what is your job?" ... the rest is up to you ....
You will see entrepreneurs, research labs, industrial groups, schools ... Go and discover them, go and talk to them, at Biomim'expo, everyone is 100% friendly and collaborative, because, as you know, nature is not a jungle, it is a world that produces wealth through cooperation and exchange!
Urban agriculture is invading our cities, in various and sometimes surprising forms. At Biomim'expo you will find a selection of photos by the photographer Giovanni Del Brenna, who offers us his travel diary, meeting the "Parisculteurs" of the capital, illustrating these new urban landscapes that are also human landscapes.
