Biomimisis in space earth technology ( BIOMIMICRY GREECE RESEARCH AND INNOVATION)


April 23, 2016 @ 9:30amApril 24, 2016 @ 4:00pm
Registration for Space Apps is Closed

The International Space Apps Challenge is a two-day hackathon where teams of technologists, scientists, designers, artists, educators, entrepreneurs, developers and students across the globe collaborate and engage with publicly available data to design innovative solutions for global challenges. During the event, participants will organize into projects focused on solving a specific challenge for example in aeronautics, earth, Journey to mars or solar system, space station, and technology. Be part of the best collective intelligence experience, through our open innovation event.
This year Biomimicry Greece research and innovation center will be host the space apps challenge in Larisa Greece, and invite you all to become creative and active to find solutions for global challenges.
Any project including at least two participants (virtual or face to face) participation during our event make that project eligible for award.

If you can not come to Larisa face to face, event and you are in any other Greek city please join the global virtual link below

1st Prize

Winners local level

1st Prize

“Space Gravity Suit” winners names (Elena Veli, Vasilapostolos Ouranis, Stefanouli Vasiliki, Profitiliotis Georgios, Ntalis Georgios).

This project is solving the "Astrocize" challenge

The solution is an underwear suit which

exerts mechanical loads on the astronaut's body through the structural tension

of its fiber matrix. This suit behaves as a second skin for the astronaut and

helps him eliminate muscular and bone loss and at the same time prevents spine

elongation. To solve this challenge the team uses Biomimicry models and inspiration from Nature. In details the "exoskeleton of insects adjusts to strain and load by changing thickness, stiffness, and fiber orientation".


1ο Βραβείο

“Space Gravity Suit” – Δημιουργία νέας, καινοτόμας στολής για τους αστροναύτες με στοιχεία βιομιμητισμού (Ομάδα Space Gravity Suit – Έλενα Βελή, Βασιλαπόστολος Ουρανής, Στεφανούλη Βασιλική, Προφητηλιώτης Γιώργος, Γιώργος Ντάλης). Περισσότερες πληροφορίες εδώ.

2nd prize


Winners names ( Euaggelia Pappa, Nikolaos Marinos, Alexandra Karathanou)

To comply with security and airline protocol, air travelers should arrive at the airport well in advance of their flight.Travelers could benefit from knowing the likelihood of a delay as it could help them prepare for the wait time. Ikarun not is a mobile apps that predicts the impact of weather on airplane departure times.

2ο Βραβείο

“IKARUS NOT” – Δημιουργία εφαρμογής διάγνωσης της πιθανότητας ακύρωσης ή μη των πτήσεων αεροπλάνων με βάση τις καιρικές συνθήκες (Ομάδα IKARUS NOT – Ευαγγελία Παππά, Νικόλαος Μαρίνος, Αλεξάνδρα Καραθάνου). Περισσότερες πληροφορίες εδώ.


3rd prize

PADMA” Worldwide Virtual Neighborhood open platform ( winners names, Vasileios Korompilias, Konstantina Grigoropoulou)

PADMA’s role is to bring together individuals with the sole aim of collaborating together in order to solve issues, might they be current world topics or user-defined subjects (personal or professional).

We want to boost collaboration, divergent thinking and Intelligence Fulfillment to help solve those specific issues.


3ο Βραβείο

“PADMA” Worldwide Virtual Neighborhood (χωρίς δικαίωμα κρίσης από τη NASA)

Από τις υπόλοιπες εφαρμογές γενικής έμπνευσης που δεν κάλυπτε κάποια πρόκληση της NASA αλλά θεωρήθηκε η καλύτερη ιδέα virtual που μπορεί να βελτιώσει προκλήσεις τις ανθρωπότητας και του κόσμου ήταν το Padma. (Ομάδα Padma – Βασίλειος Κορομπίλιας, Κωνσταντίνα Γρηγοροπούλου). Περισσότερες πληροφορίες εδώ.
