On the off-chance that in the week beginning 8th September there is a reader will not be attending either the AAL Joint Programme Conference in Budapest or the Kings Fund’s International Digital Health & Care Congress (this editor is down to speak at both) how about going to the Medical Engineering Centres Annual Meeting and Bioengineering14 event at Imperial College on 10th & 11th September?
(Note that Telehealth & Telecare Aware is a proud sponsor of the Kings Fund event, enabling readers to receive a 10% discount on entry and dinner.)
MEC 2014 will apparently be the UK’s largest ever gathering of Biomedical Engineers, Bioengineers and Medical Engineers, with participants from leading academic centres and the MedTech industry. Imperial College is organising this event with a network of other UK universities, including Oxford University, Leeds University and Kings College. This conference claims to offer the opportunity to learn about cutting edge academic research and business R&D across a wide range of MedTech sectors. It will apparently offer a unique opportunity to build networks and relationships between academics, businesses and clinical collaborators.
Themes covered include:
- Orthopaedic Bioengineering
- Rehabilitation, Sports and Motion
- Bioelectronics and Bionanotechnology
- Bioinstrumentation and Medical Devices
- Biomedical Imaging and Image Analysis
- Cancer Engineering and Technologies
- Cardiovascular and Respiratory
- Cellular and Molecular Bioengineering
- Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine
- Novel Applications of Bioengineering
Imperial College anticipate 500 delegates including attendees from academic research centres, MedTech companies, representatives from University Technology Transfer Offices as well as clinical collaborators.
