The Université de Lyon is partnering with the 2021 edition of the French American Innovation Day (FAID) event, led by the French Consulate-General in Houston, which will take place online on September 13, 15 and 17, 2021.

The aim of the French American Innovation Day (FAID) 2021 is to bring together leading French and American researchers (public & private), start-ups, PhD students and post-docs to develop collaborative projects and accelerate research in the physical sciences and environmental engineering.

This year’s FIAD will focus on three main themes that highlight holistic and bio-inspired approaches, particularly those in biomimicry. These themes are:

  • Wind power, solar power and energy efficiency;
  • Resilience in the built environment;
  • Water management, waste management and water recycling.

What is biomimicry? Michelle Fehler talks about energy efficiency biomimicry projects. Watch the presentation
