As small-size wind and ocean wave energy conversion devices become increasingly popular, bio-inspired engineering solutions are attracting increasingly more attention for the purpose of efficient and safe integration with the environment. The workshop will bring together experts in geoscience, engineering, biomechanics, physics and computational science to discuss the recent advances in this interdisciplinary field.
