Project Details


This research project seeks to explore the possibility of designing and evaluating business innovations through the use of bioinspired models and methods, which have been developed in the domain of complex systems engineering and non-classical computing. Although a good body of literature has been published that demonstrates and justifies the value of biological metaphors for understanding entrepreneurial innovation, little work has been done on the abstraction and implementation of the bioinspired mechanisms through which entrepreneurial innovation can be generated. In the engineering and computational domains, however, the use of bioinspired models and methods for the design of systems and the resolution of complex problems is increasingly common. The thesis defended with this project is that bioinspired models and methods can act as accelerators of business innovations and as virtual laboratories for the study of innovation. To justify the proposed thesis, a conceptual, methodological and technological framework will be developed and evaluated with computational prototypes. It is expected that this project will establish the basis for the subsequent design of a business innovation accelerator, which is one of the most important challenges of the Innovation Center.
