3nd Annual
Nature-Inspired Exploration for Aerospace (NIEA) Summit
August 14-17, 2018, Cleveland, OH

NASA’s Glenn Research Center is developing methods and data analytics tools to support nature-inspired system design (physiomimetics/bionics/biomimetics/biomimicry). NIEA summits support these activities by connecting researchers and citizen scientists, who collect data, to students, educators and engineers who use physiomimetics to explore, share or create solutions to engineering problems.

Join us for 4 days of talks, panel discussions, and site visits that highlight new approaches to developing enabling technologies for aerospace applications. This year we focus on data science to enable nature-inspired exploration and nature-inspired sensors and analytics tools. Speakers will include experts, innovators, and disruptive thinkers from academia, industry and government.
