Our team of skilled facilitators and experts will help you focus your attention on meeting priority interests and gaining multiple benefits in the process. Our understanding of leadership development and innovation creates an experience that plays to the strengths of your team while bringing in new models, tools and ideas for solutions to emerge.
The NatuR&D team will work with you to:
- Scope the specifics of the context and scale you are working within
- Discover strategies at work in Nature and in your field

High Speed Train Inspired by the Kingfisher
“[E]ngineers looked to nature to re-design the bullet train. They noticed how kingfisher birds are able to slice through the air and dive into the water to catch prey while barely making a splash.”
Announcing the 2021 Biomimicry Global Design Challenge Finalists
“The Biomimicry Institute is proud to announce this year’s Biomimicry Global Design Challenge finalists, an international group of 12 teams that have created ideas inspired by nature’s intelligence aligned with the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Global problems need local solutions, and this group of finalists demonstrate the wide-ranging opportunities biomimicry can offer — challenges related to flooding and evacuation from unexpected storms, water filtration efficiency, heavy metal and light pollution, as well as various adaptations to a warming climate. …The finalists were selected based upon their biomimicry designs, and the potential for their solutions to solve real world challenges.“
