Research project

Designing bio-inspired innovations requires researchers and designers to have easy access to scientific and biological data, which is often scattered and difficult to access. To this end, Big Bang Project is developing Ok Gaia.

Ok Gaia is a digital tool for mining biological data, designed for scientists and designers (engineers, architects and town planners). Its aim is to provide them with a broad catalogue of biological strategies on which to base the design and development of bio-inspired products, services and systems. Within this tool, the identification of inspiring biological strategies is automated and based on data from scientific journals and publications available in open access or on the web.

Partners such as Centrale Supélec and Latitudes' Tech for Good programme are helping the agency to develop. Currently accessible only to Big Bang Project staff, its use could eventually be extended to a wider audience.
