The first meeting showed the great enthusiasm of fellow researchers in Biomedical Engineering to exchange ideas and pass frontiers in this multidisciplinary field. The second meeting aims to build bridges between research field, and open new areas of research.
The conference is particularly aimed at BioMedical researchers working in the Netherlands, although researchers from abroad are welcome as well.
