Welcome to Tampere, Finland!

It is our pleasure to invite you to the joint conference of the European Medical and Biological Engineering Conference (EMBEC) and the Nordic-Baltic Conference on Biomedical Engineering (NBC), in Tampere, Finland, in June 2017. These two long running conferences are now combined for the first time with aim to build a truly cross-discipline conference. We aim to present all traditional BMES and BME areas, but also highlight new emerging fields, such as tissue engineering, bioinformatics, biosensing, neurotechnology, additive manufacturing technologies for medicine and biology, and bioimaging, to name a few. Moreover, we will emphasize the role of education, translational research, and commercialization.

The scientific and social program at EMBEC’17 & NBC’17 provides an excellent platform for engineers, biologists, and clinical experts to enhance our knowledge and scientific achievements by bridging complementary disciplines and new findings into an interactive and attractive forum.

Welcome to Tampere in 2017!
