Awards, challenges and competitions

The International Academy for Medical and Biological Engineering (IAMBE) announces four IAMBE Early Career Awards for Young Faculty / Research Institution members (Assistant Professor or equivalent Research Institution / Industry position)

The Awards, highlighting the successful onset of an academic career, are associated with world regions as follows:

  • North America
  • South America
  • Europe / Near East / Africa
  • Far East / Australia / New Zealand

For each region, there will be one Award (€2000). The Award will be presented at the 2022 World Congress on Medical Physics and Biomedical Engineering in Singapore (June 12 - 17).

The Award documents the commitment of IAMBE to support and encourage promising young researchers at an already advanced, but not (yet) tenured level in view of a successful and fruitful further academic career. Likewise, young researchers in private research institutions or industry research groups are envisaged. In so doing, IAMBE intends to strengthen the long-term basis and development of BME at the university as well as at the private research institution/industry level.

The Challenge aims to encourage the development of algorithms for early predict dropouts, with the objective of minimizing adherence problems that can compromise the impact of healthcare digital solutions in elderly users observing the application’s measurements, usage patterns and evaluation results.

The challenge award is 1000€ and best submitted solutions shall be discussed at the IUPESM World Congress on Medical Physics and Biomedical Engineering in Singapore (June 12 - 17).
