Without nature, many of today's inventions and developments would not be possible. People have usually been surprisingly successful when they seek in nature for solutions to problems.
It was Leonardo da Vinci (1452-1592) who laid the foundation for a new field of natural science with, among other things, his scientific studies of the flight behaviour of birds.
We can therefore describe him as one of the first scientists to work in bionics.
Looking to nature as a model in the last few decades, we have made amazing progress in the fields of technology and medicine.
In the meantime, bionic-based products and technologies have become almost ubiquitous in everyday life:
They play a very important role in medicine, industry, the automotive industry, aerospace, architecture, chemistry, coating technologies, architecture, and fashion.
