Biomimicry Global Design Challenge: Taiwan Competition

Biomimicry Taiwan are excited to partner with The Biomimicry Institute and we are hosting a regional competition in conjunction with the BGDC called the Biomimicry Global Design Challenge: Taiwan Competition. University students and young professionals who are interested in entering the BGDC are encouraged to submit to the Taiwan Competition. The Biomimicry Institute will grant free submissions to the top teams from the Taiwan Competition.

Taiwan Competition is also collaborating with the Ministry of Science and Technology and New Taipei City Government, seeking innovations inspired by nature, including how to make the ocean and fishery port clean, preventing waste flowing into the ocean, transforming ocean wastes into value added innovation, sustainable production and consumption of marine resources, transportation innovation, and sustainable city planning.  Winners of this challenge will have not only rewards but get assistance and support to apply to the Biomimicry Global Design Challenge.
