To achieve this goal we have assembled a consortium comprised of architects (CITA), computer scientists/biophysicists (UWE), mycologists (UU) and industry experts in mycelium-based technologies (MOGU).
We will target two principle technological breakthroughs:
1. growing monolithic structures at metre length scales
2. functionilising the mycelium network to act as a computing device
The project will be funded for three years under an EU H2020 FET-Open grant agreement.
This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under FET grant agreement no. 858132
