BME IDEA

- BioMedical Engineering Innovation, Design and Entrepreneurship Alliance

We are a member of the international alliance of university units who are researching in or teaching Innovation, Design or Entrepreneurship within BioMedical Engineering, BME IDEA. The alliance consists of more than 160 universities from around the world.

BME IDEA was founded in 2003 with three goals:

  • Review the experiences of different university programs involved in innovationdesigntechnology transfer and entrepreneurship in biomedical engineering education.
  • Discuss objectives, challenges and opportunities for further development of these programs – including industry and academic perspectives.
  • Explore the potential for sharing resources and creating community-wide tools (e.g., web portal, national design contest, etc.).
