Research of the Department Bionic Lightweight Design

Based on a long-standing expertise in the field of marine plankton organisms the section Bionic Lightweight Design is investigating new high-efficient lightweight construction methods with the support of established partners. They are based on evolutionary optimized shells of diatoms.


Research projects

  • ELiSE Research
    Exploration of a method for improving lightweight structures by using different pre-optimized lightweight structure of marine planktonic organisms

  • Helmholtz Virtual Institute PlanktonTech
