Participate in further events for young talents:

Junges Forum trifft Alte Hasen:

In the "Junges Forum trifft Alte Hasen" format, personalities who have spent their entire academic and industrial professional lives in the field of medical technology are invited to pass on their knowledge and experience to the next generation. Young medical technicians learn directly from the experienced "Alten Hasen" and can ask questions and enter into a cross-generational dialogue. This event takes place on 25.09.2023 at the Young Forum Satellite Event and is included in the Young Forum ticket. Registration for the Young Forum needed.


During a break-out session, participants can meet different representatives from companies and look for similarities between their perspective on future work and what the companies have to offer. For companies seeking for highly talented and committed staff, this is a good opportunity to interact with young talents and leave a good impression on future potential employees. The event takes place in a relaxed atmosphere on-site of the conference and allows for easy conversations with different companies and people. Included in conference fee, no separate registration needed.

Lunch with Leaders:

Young biomedical engineers can interact with leaders in biomedical research and industry in a separate area during the lunch break. They can be part of a pleasant conversation during this lunch session and enjoy this moment to share experiences and nurture current knowledge. The chairmen of the various technical committees (Fachausschussvorsitzende), as well as representatives of leading companies and university professors, will be invited to discuss exclusively with you.
