How can nature inspire solutions for clean growth within the UK?

Over the summer, KTN’s Nature Inspired Solutions Special Interest Group (NIS SIG) will be hosting a webinar series to explore how nature inspired solutions can contribute to clean growth within the UK.


In our second session, we will explore the role of nature inspired design in modern manufacturing and the impact it could have within the sector. By uncovering the underlying mechanisms used in nature, we can apply them in the design of new products, processes or systems.


We will also be joined by a panel of expert speakers from Heriot-Watt University and Nottingham Trent University who are leading in academic research in this area who will showcase their work in the following three exciting areas:

– The use of natural polymers to solve the plastic crisis
– How termites can help us manufacture better 3D printing machines
– The use of plant extracts to facilitate direct metallisation processes onto non-conductive surfaces
