Through the development and integration of medical research and education with health care and industries, we contribute to increased quality of life in a global perspective.

The Department of Biomedical Engineering at Linköping University is a national center for research, education, and innovation in Biomedical Engineering. Our activities are driven by the society’s healthcare needs and are conducted in close collaboration with the biomedical industry and hospital clinics.

Our main goal is to be a catalyst for sustainable growth in the biomedical engineering innovation systems of the future - an arena for leading international researchers, teachers, entrepreneurs, and students - where new knowledge is created and disseminated. Through development and integration of biomedical research and education with the health care and the business community, we contribute to enhanced quality of life on a global scale.
