The International Conference “Nanotechnologies and Biomedical Engineering”, 4th edition

Today, in Chișinău, the 4th International Conference “Nanotechnologies and Biomedical Engineering” – ICNBME-2019, opened at the Labor Institute, under the auspices of UTM, AȘM, USMF “N. Testemițanu”, the Biomedical Engineering Society of Moldova, in collaboration with the International Federation for Medical and Biological Engineering, the European Commission “NanoMedTwin “, the National Agency for Research and Development, Global Biomarketing Group – Moldova, SA IMUNOTEHNOMED SRL and Medexcom-Teh SRL.

Organized every two years, ICNBME-2019 continues the series of international conferences in the field of nanotechnologies and biomedical engineering, reaching the 4th edition. Through its large international participation, ICNBME is required as an important regional multidisciplinary scientific forum, representing an excellent platform for scientists and specialists concerned with fundamental and applied research, who seek an exchange of ideas, experience and presentation of the latest developments, achievements and theoretical applications in their areas of concern.

At the opening of the forum, greetings were given by Liliana NICOLAESCU-ONOFREI, Minister of Education, Culture and Research of the Republic of Moldova; S.E. Masanobu YOSHII, Ambassador of Japan in Chișinău; Hidenori MIMURA, Research Institute of Electronics, Shizuoka University, Japan; Ion TIGHINEANU, president of the Academy of Sciences of Moldova; and other prominent personalities.

After greeting the audience, the rector of UTM, prof. Viorel BOSTAN, emphasized that the conference proceedings had a positive impact on the professional training of specialists in the fields of nanomaterials, nanotechnologies, biomedical engineering, which, under the conditions of globalization, allows universities in the Republic of Moldova to be competitive with those in the West, and their graduates, including of UTM – to face competition on the international labor market. A considerable contribution in this regard has the collaboration with world-renowned scientists, many of whom are present at the conference, including two Doctors Honoris Causa of UTM – Hans L. HARTNAGEL from the Institute of Microwave Engineering and Photonics, Technical University of Darmstadt, Germany, and Nicolas PALLIKARAKIS, University of Patras, Greece. At the same time, among the 11 speakers of the forum are two world-class scholars who have their roots within the UTM: acad. Ion TIGHINEANU, president of the Academy of Sciences of Moldova, which, since 2001, runs an important segment of the UTM – National Center for the Study and Testing of Materials, but also prof. Oleg LUPAN, head of the Department of Microelectronics and Biomedical Engineering, Faculty of Computers, Informatics and Microelectronics, the most internationally recognized scientist from the Republic of Moldova.

Dr. Victor ȘONTEA, head of the Department of Microelectronics and Biomedical Engineering, president of the organizing council of the event, underlined the importance of ICNBME-2019: about 200 specialists from 20 countries attend the conference, presenting 180 reports. The papers reflect the results of the complex and multidisciplinary research carried out by approximately one hundred groups of researchers worldwide.

The participants of the event aim to address a wide range of topics of major importance for research and development, such as nanotechnologies and nanomaterials; metamaterials; bio-micro / nano technologies and devices; physics, biophysics; bioinformatics; health informatics, e-health and telemedicine; biomedical engineering, molecular, cellular and tissue engineering; clinical engineering; nuclear and radiation security, etc.

ICNBME-2019 will take place until September 21.
