Welcome to the 2022 meeting of the BME-Innovation, Design, and Entrepreneurship Alliance (BME-IDEA)!

BME-IDEA brings together participants from academic institutions and industry to network and share best practices in innovation, design and entrepreneurship in biomedical engineering education.

BME-IDEA convenes alongside Biomedical Engineering Society's (BMES) annual conference, and this year's meeting is on October 12, 2022 in San Antonio at the Henry B. González Convention Center (located at 900 E. Market Street, San Antonio, Texas 78205).

This year's BME-IDEA convening will be focused on reuniting in-person, catching up on activities and accomplishments over the past 2+ years, and sharing best practices across programs. Given the relatively short planning cycle, the event will be a half-day session, followed by a networking reception to which all participants are invited.

VentureWell is an organizing member of the BME-IDEA planning team, which is made up of faculty from leading BME programs across the country. We look forward to seeing you in-person at the event!
