In collaboration with the Escuela Universitaria Centro de Diseño de la Facultad de Arquitectura, user centred-design whether medical or patient-centred, is a complementary objective of the NIB's lines of research.


Since 1992, the Biomedical Engineering Seminar has brought together students, professionals and companies to study some 15 applications or systems each year. The monographs are written in depth on a specific aspect of a lecture, under the guidance of guest lecturers. As a contribution to the development of research, the writing of the Monograph involves learning the technique of scientific writing, the use of a reference manager and techniques for presentation at conferences.
