The Convergent Science Network for biohybrid and biomimetics systems (CSN) will coordinate and facilitate the development, dissemination, and deployment of multidisciplinary methods, concepts, and technologies to advance the understanding and engineering of biomimetic and hybrid biological and artificial systems.
CSN goals will be achieved through a number of concrete actions during the 3 years. These actions include:
- Roadmapping events with accompanying policy documents
- High-impact workshops and schools to achieve intense exchange among the leading groups in the field and provide training opportunities for junior researchers
- The deployment of a web 2.0 CSN portal that will be the main point of access and dissemination
- The production of a handbook of biomimetic and biohybrid systems, a number of brokerage and outreach events to address additional stakeholders.
