The NCCR Co-Me has established the Master program in Biomedical
Engineering at ETH Zurich and the
Master in Biomedical Engineering of the University of Bern. A
total of 170 students are currently enrolled, 50 at ETH and 120 at
University of Bern. The programs benefit from the exchange of
lecturers. 40-50 students are starting every year at each location.
Annual Research Networking Workshop
The research networking workshop (RNW) is the main annual meeting for the Co-Me
community and provides an excellent opportunity for knowledge exchange. The RNW
allows young researchers to present their achievements to a broad Co-Me
audience and contributes to raise individual experience in congress-like
presentation and discussion technique. A committee of junior scientists is
organizing and managing the event.
Activities at Schools
The NCCR Co-Me promotes the education of young researchers. Co-Me scientists
are regularly participating with lectures and demos at events like the
TechDays at Swiss High Schools.
A short movie on Co-Me PhD student
Sveva Ambrosetti and her work was produced. It provides a success story
as an example for a Co-Me device developed by a female engineer in
collaboration with clinicians. The movie was presented as part of a
travelling exhibit and may also be used for events at schools.
