Starting in 2019, the Barcelona Knowledge Hub of the Academia Europaea (AE-BKH) collaborates with the Biomimetics Sciences Institute, which promotes the renaturation of life as a model and mentor for building a future based on a new paradigm of progress through research and innovation inspired by biomimetics. In particular, the two institutions established the framework for collaborating on various scientific dissemination activities with the goal of bridging science and society, specifically, those activities related to nature and/or symbiotic connections between society and the natural environment.

The first of the aforementioned activities has been the cultural and scientific event “Mind and Matter: the Symbiotic Thought of Raimon Panikkar, Ramon Margalef and James Lovelock”. This event was held at the Institute for Catalan Studies on Tuesday, May 14, 2019, at 6:00 pm.
