The assembly was made up of engineers – students and graduates -, teachers, doctors, patients and donors.
Prof. Antoine Nonclerc, President of the sector, reported on the evolution of the last born : with 50% growth over the last 4 years, the biomedical sector reaches almost parity by having a female representation of 40% of engineers.
Two presentations then illustrated the spirit of collaboration that led to the creation of this sector :
- Prof. Alain Delchambre recalled the genesis of this training whose multidisciplinary research collaborations were one of the incentives to train biomedical engineers.
- Prof. Jacques Devière then shared his enthusiasm and pride in being able to save lives with tools designed and developed by teams of engineers and doctors.
