biotrail is...

About the biotrail (Ilkka Räsänen interviews Mariia Kozlova in September 2017)

A forest trail, where you can learn how nature has been inspiring innovations. Infoboards describe various natural phenomena. The story of each board continues with a video presenting applications of these ideas into technology or science.

The trail passes along Saimaa lake shore next to Lappeenranta University of Technology, Finland - an environment where technology meets nature. Follow Skinnarilankatu to the North and soon you will see the introduction board on your right. Or you can walk the trail online on this website. 

 
 
 

The biotrail was born within the walls of Lappeenranta University of Technology from an idea of a systematic creativity Professor and inspiration of students. But its implementation owes to Environmental Bureau of Lappeenranta city, who supported the project, provided funding and helped with administrative issues.
