Under a variety of similar names, starting with Bioengineering 08, this meeting has been held annually for over 10 years, and has become the largest such gathering in the UK. It was held at Imperial College London in 2008 and 2014, and returns to Imperial for 2018 and 2019.
The name change reflects our desire to be as inclusive as possible. We hope that the meeting will be attractive to all of those who consider themselves Bioengineers, Biomedical Engineers and Medical Engineers. The large number of participants – over 500 in 2014 – from universities, the NHS and industry demonstrates the phenomenal growth of bioengineering and related disciplines in the UK.
