BME-IDEA Meeting

Join Us for the BME-IDEA Meeting 2023!
Seattle Convention Center | Summit Building
October 11, 2023, 1:00-5:30 p.m. ET

The Biomedical Engineering Innovation, Design, and Entrepreneurship Alliance—more commonly referred to as BME-IDEA—was initiated in 2003 when a group of university professors teaching biomedical engineering across the United States realized that they had common interests that were not being met by available conference offerings. The first BME-IDEA meeting was held in San Francisco in 2003, and the alliance has met annually or biannually ever since. In 2013, the first Europe BME-IDEA meeting was held among programs there. In 2016, it expanded further into the Asia-Pacific region. Efforts are now underway to develop programs in Africa and South America. The goals of the alliance are to:

  • Share the experiences of different university programs involved in innovation, design, technology transfer, and entrepreneurship in biomedical engineering education
  • Discuss objectives, challenges, and opportunities for further development of these programs—including industry and academic perspectives
  • Explore the potential for creating community-wide tools and sharing resources
