57th DGBMT Annual Conference on Biomedical Engineering!

On behalf of the VDE DGBMT, the local organizing committee, and the scientific committee, we are delighted to invite you to the 57th Annual Conference of the German Society for Biomedical Engineering taking place from 26. - 28.09.2023 in Duisburg.

The annual conference is one of the largest platforms for European scientists, physicians, engineers, researchers, students, and young professionals to exchange knowledge and experiences of the latest biomedical trends and findings. The VDE DGBMT brings a network of passionate professionals, all contributing their experience and knowledge. Therefore, we must have the ability to tackle current challenges. This upcoming conference will be held under a set of themes such as medical translation, patient-centered medicine, regulatory affairs, healthcare sustainability, deep medicine and technical sovereignty. Another main focus of the conference is the promotion of young talents. In order to enhance networking and interaction on-site, we offer several professional and social side events such as Company Tinder, Young Forum, Get Together, or our Evening Event.        

One-third of all German biomedical companies are based in North Rhine-Westphalia and so we wanted our conference to take place closely at the Mercatorhalle Duisburg. Several universities and industry partners will be an integral part of the conference and, for the first time, will have the opportunity to actively participate in the conference program by hosting a symposium or joining our large interactive exhibition.  

We are looking forward to an excellent meeting with you!

Join us in Duisburg 2023!
Glück auf!
