Since the InfraTech hackathon 2019 the B-Collective has been formed. We founded this network to exchange knowledge and experiences with applying biomimicry in complex, technical and social challenges. Because the challenges we face are universal, it helps us to make more speed in making the world more sustainable! Please notice: we are an inclusive network with high ambitions. If you want to join us, please send us your motivation.

Anne-Cecile Goulet

Engineer in Biotechnology

"As an engineer specialized in biology, I discovered biomimicry at the end of my studies. Driven by the UN Sustainable Development Goals, I had co-founded an innovation and expertise agency specialized in biomimicry. I’m yet still active in this ecosystem, seeking solutions into nature and my energy is dedicated to build a sustainable future."
