Abstract

In this chapter the most significant results of the investigation of the international biomimetics research and development landscape are presented. The first section discusses the situation in Germany, whereas the latter sections take a European and global perspective. The network analysis results are further supplemented by the results of database analyses regarding publications and citation frequency. In accordance with the information that was gained from the technology foresight studies and the case studies (see chapter 3.2), we distinguished two categories in the analysis as well as in the following representation of the biomimetics research and development landscape: i) biomimetics in the narrow senseand ii) R&D approaches taking learning from natureas their basis.
