Imagine spending 5 days in full immersion on a little Norwegian island to explore nature, ecosystems and solve big challenges that could inspire your next innovation...

Imagine learning from nature to come up with new, sustainable and highly efficient solutions in areas like transport, energy, sheltering or packaging, and even communication and management.

You will learn incredible strategies and solutions around how nature masters movement, on the ground, on water or in the air. You will also discover beautiful solutions for energy harvesting, storage and distribution from plants and birds. You will also be amazed by smart natural packaging and sheltering solutions from insects and animals. And finally wonder about collaborative communication strategies that birds implemented to fish, organize and survive in tough weather conditions.

All of these great insights could be useful to build the masterplan for your next innovation wether you work as an engineer, designer or in strategy in your company.

You will be exploring the surroundings of the island of Runde, near the city of Ålesund and learn from nature by observing it with local biologists and naturalists from the Runde Environment Center. You will also be guided throughout this journey by our fantastic team of facilitators who will equip you with tools and knowledge to better tackle the challenges your business faces.

You will be learning by doing, putting new techniques into practice to design new solutions with the help of special tools such as the Circulab. Notions from design thinking, biomimicry and the circular economy will be taught and put daily into practice to improve your learnings outcomes.


For companies this training represents a fantastic opportunity to stimulate the creativity of their employees, have them think in a more holistic way and improve their problem solving skills with new techniques.

BiomimicryNorway is partnering with Wiithaa and Semcon to organize this learning expedition workshop. We will also be assisted by Lindsay James, VP of Regenerative Enterprise at Interface (global sustainability leader and world's largest manufacturer of commercial carpet tile).

Come join us from April 24 to 28 in Runde island for this incredible journey to discover the beautiful landscapes of Norway and learn how to innovate with nature !
