Moreover, we will emphasize the role of education, translational research, and commercialization of new ideas.

The scientific program at EMBEC 2020 is in your hands. Proposals for special sessions, tracks, and workshops are welcome. Please fill out the form – providing title, organizers and brief description until 15 October, 2019 31 October, 2019 (extended!) (the form is available on this site: Propose a Special Session).

Our aim is to make EMBEC 2020 a platform for engineers, physicists, biologists, and medical professionals to enhance our collective knowledge and scientific achievements by bridging complementary disciplines and new findings into an interactive and attractive forum.
