Program 2021

BME@LiU 2021 took place February 18, 2021. The conference was digital and was broadcasted live via Youtube with lectures and a Digital Arena where posters and other material was presented. The conference was held in English. 

What 

For many years Sweden has been at the forefront of new innovations that have been of great importance to health care. During the conference, different perspectives will be touched upon: What future priorities need to be made in research at LiU and nationally? What role should medical technology play in healthcare? What industrial opportunities are there? How can collaboration between actors in research, healthcare and industry be strengthened to increase utilization?

The themes for this year's BME@LiU were:

  • "What are the future challenges for biomedical engineering in Sweden?"
  • "How is R&D in biomedical engineering at LiU leading to a better healthcare?"
