Evolutionary principles leading to high performance lightweight constructions in Marine Plankton Organisms – fundamentals and technical applications / A Helmholtz Virtual Institute

Five aspects from the backbone of the Virtual Institute:
(1) Research on the evolution and functional morphology of marine plankton organisms,
(2) Research on new approaches to lightweight structure optimization,
(3) Exchange of methods and expertises between fundamental science and engineering,
(4) Construction of prototypes displaying principles in cooperation with partners and students,
(5) Presentation of the results
