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 and so we once again welcome active participation and will start a call for abstracts soon inviting everybody to submit his/her latest study findings. 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!
Gl├╝ck auf!

Key topics

Special emphasis is put on the following topics and challenges:

Medical Translation

Medical Translation deals with the translation of new scientific findings from research into clinical applications through the consistent development and use of future technologies.

Patient-centred Medicine

Patient-centered Medicine focuses on the health and well-being of all patients, who should be recognized as individuals, treated accordingly and supported by technological measures.

Regulatory Affairs

Regulatory Affairs deals with the current challenges of medical device approval, especially for companies due to the new MDR, but also for new sophisticated technologies.

Healthcare Sustainability

Sustainable Healthcare aims to improve, maintain or restore the health of patients while minimizing the negative impact on the environment and initiating future improvements. 

Deep Medicine

Deep Medicine refers to the emerging field of research at the intersection of AI and Big Data to unlock the potential for diagnosis, treatments, and documentation, and thus multiple applications in healthcare.

Technical Sovereignity

Technological Sovereignty aims to ensure the delivery of healthcare by further developing medical technical standards through advanced sovereignly mastered technologies and technically excellent trained professionals.
