BIOKON – our goals

Our Goals

The Bionics Competence Network (BIOKON) hosts the 28 major players in the field of bionics and biomimetics in Germany. It is a federally funded project under the auspices of the Federal Ministry for Education and Research. The aim of BIOKON is to demonstrate the possibilities of bionics to business and industry, science, and the general public, and subsequently tap its full potential.Founded in 2001, BIOKON has entered its second stage in June, 2004. The group of six founding centers has since been expanded by 28 additional institutes and research facilities with outstanding competences in the field of bionics.This nationwide network thus encompasses the most important research groups in bionics and provides an ideal forum for scientific exchange, the development of curriculae for primary, secondary, and tertiary education as well as providing qualified contacts for inquiries from the industry.
