biomed esicmWe are glad to welcome the  European Society of Intensive Care Medicine (ESICM) to the Biomedical Alliance in Europe, bringing the total amount of members to 30. ESICM unites more than 9000 professionals in intensive care medicine and we are sure that the organisation will provide valuable input and expertise in our activities. 

ESICM was established in 1982 and the organisation supports and promotes the advancement of knowledge in intensive care medicine through education, research and professional development.

The number of specialties and the diversity in our membership continue to increase allowing us to work intensively on even more projects.

BioMed Alliance Members have produced a cartoon highlighting the importance of high-quality and unbiased continuing medical education for medical professionals.

Medical professionals participate in continuing education to keep their knowledge up to date and to be able to provide the best standard of care to their patients. This education is provided by independent medical associations that rely on networks of experts. It is vital that they are able to continue this important mission and that education for doctors remains impartial and based on the most relevant and reliable scientific information.

Today, experts from the Biomedical Alliance in Europe (BioMed Alliance) are advising the Joint Research Centre (JRC) of the European Commission in Ispra, Italy, on the clinical evaluation of high-risk medical devices. Representatives of the healthcare professions will discuss how scientists and clinicians can help to implement the new EU Medical Devices Regulation (MDR) and the new EU In Vitro Diagnostic Medical Devices Regulation (IVDR).

The Biomedical Alliance in Europe (the BioMed Alliance) is happy to announce that two new members have joined the ranks in January 2019. We would like to welcome the European Brain Council (EBC) and the European Federation of National Associations of Orthopaedics and Traumatology (EFORT) to the BioMed Alliance and we look forward to a fruitful cooperation. This year has already had a good start and there are many more interesting activities and events to look forward to.

The EBC aims to promote brain research to improve the quality of life of people that live with mental or neurological conditions. It is a platform that fosters interaction between societies, patient organisations, professional societies and industry partners. You can find more info here: https://www.braincouncil.eu/ 

EFORT promotes the exchange of scientific knowledge and experience in the field of prevention and both the conservative and surgical treatment of diseases and injuries related to the musculo-skeletal system. It brings together national orthopaedic and trauma associations from 39 countries across Europe. You can find more info here: https://www.efort.org/

We are sure that both new members will provide valuable new input to the activities of the BioMed Alliance therefore we can continue to advance biomedical innovation at European level.
