National Center of Competence in Research Bio-Inspired Materials
This interdisciplinary center has been striving to become an internationally recognized hub for paradigm-shifting research, innovation, and education in the domain of 'smart' materials whose function and design are inspired by nature. Transcending traditional disciplines, the center integrates the research activities of 15 research groups from the University of Fribourg?s Adolphe Merkle Institute, its departments of chemistry, medicine, and physics, and partners at the University of Geneva and the Swiss Federal Institutes of Technology in Zurich (ETHZ) and Lausanne (EPFL).
