WS05 - Biointelligent Manufacturing – Looking to biology with engineering eyes

Workshop Organized by

Thomas Bauernhansl, Director Fraunhofer Institute for Manufacturing Engineering and Automation IPA and Institute of Industrial Manufacturing and Management IFF, Germany and Robert Miehe, Director of Center for Biointelligent Production at Fraunhofer Institute for Manufacturing Engineering and Automation IPA, Germany and Ralf Takors, Director of Institute of Biochemical Engineering (IBVT), Germany

Aims and Objectives

The aim of the workshop is to bring together researchers and practitioners and provide them with a platform to report on recent advances in the newly emerging area of biointelligent manufacturing. After the talks of three invited speakers, we attempt to define the basis for a joint perspectives paper in a peer-reviewed journal in a collaborative workshop.

Topics under this workshop include (but not limited to)

  • Biology-technology-interfaces (BTI)
  • Biosensors, bioactuators, softsensors
  • Automation solutions of bioprocesses
  • Digital twins and complex modeling of bioprocesses
  • Enabling technologies for biointelligent manufacturing
  • Sustainability of biointelligent manufacturing
