How can we learn and take advantage of biological principles?

The 9th Aachen-Dresden International Textile Conference addresses a key question of the future technology development: How can we learn and take advantage of biological principles and how can we tune man-made technology to be in balance with nature? With regard to fiber, film and textile technology we address specific and step-by-step as well as disruptive new developments in the fields of 
• Fiber technology   
• Flexible electronics – Energy from light
