DGBMT Students Competition

The DGBMT calls for participation of students presenting their research projects or diploma theses results. The best contributions are awarded certificates and prizes (posters and oral presentations in a common process).

1. Prize: 1000 EUR

2. Prize: 300 EUR

3. Prize: 200 EUR

Places 1 - 10 each receive a textbook from the Biomedical Engineering series.

These submissions are subject to the conference peer review process and subsequently will undergo an additional evaluation based on quality, degree of innovation and presentation of the scientific-technical work.

The best 10 papers are assessed by the jurors during the running sessions of the BMT conference and a ranking established. All finalists receive a participation certificate. Criteria for assessment by jurors of the Fachausschuss Aus- und Weiterbildung der DGBMT im VDE (see on the right side)
