The AWI investigates the principles that make the exoskeletons (shells) of diatoms extremely light and stable constructions. As part of a systematic development of innovative, bionic methods for the optimization of lightweight solutions, they were successfully used under the technology brand ELiSE in many industrial projects.

A spin-off focusing on software solutions for AM design developments will be launched in 2018. In addition, AWI pursues a long-term innovation strategy in the field of bionic lightweight construction based on the study of the evolution and functional morphology of diatoms.
