Outreach and Events

Please note

Due to the highly dynamic situation regarding COVID-19, we cannot guarantee that upcoming events will take place as planned. Whenever possible, we will reschedule cancelled events or provide online alternatives.

An important component of the cluster’s interactions with the general public will be a series of events offered within livMatS’ concept “Learning from nature...in nature”. An integral part of this concept and of livMatS itself is the Botanic Garden Freiburg. It is ideally suited to demonstrate similarities and differences between biological and technical materials and illustrate concepts in both the biological and the technical realms.

livMats will construct a biomimetic Pavilion in the Botanic Garden Freiburg which will host some of livMatS’ outreach activities. The architecture of the pavilion draws inspiration from nature and symbolizes by its very appearance some of the concepts of livMatS, showcasing its outreach activities.

In addition, livMatS engages in a broad range of events which demonstrate the objectives and the work of the cluster: Until March 22 2020 livMats is contributing to the exhibition "Baubionik – Biologie beflügelt Architektur" in the WaldHaus Freiburg. The exhibition highlights examples and visions from architecture, engineering and natural sciences. Visitors can learn more about the biological role models of livMatS.
