What is Emedic Global?

Engineering Medical Innovation Global Competition (EMedic Global) is an international student competition dedicated to promoting client-centered inventions. The first EMedic Global was organized by the Chinese University of Hong Kong in 2016. It received 39 submissions from 13 different countries, and selected 27 finalist teams to compete in Hong Kong. In 2017, EMedic Global takes off for a second consecutive year in Taiwan. Organized by National Taiwan University and co-organized by Institute of Polymer Science and Engineering and Research and Development Center for Medical Devices of National Taiwan University, and Taiwanese Society of Biomedical Engineering, EMedic Global continues to encourage students worldwide to gain advancement in the field of biomedical engineering.
