Medical Technology Center

The Institute of Biomedical and Neural Engineering

The Institute of Biomedical and Neural Engineering (IBNE) was established to coordinate large-scale, multi-disciplinary research initiatives between Reykjavik University, University of Iceland, Landspitali and Med-Tech companies. The IBNE institute draws together scientists, medics and engineers from across Iceland to create revolutionary progress in neuroscience, biomedical engineering, tissue engineering and clinical research.

IBNE collaborates with research institutes, universities and companies not only in Iceland: the numerous international collaborations allow to find in IBNE a group of people, researcher, students and teachers from all over the world and with different educational backgrounds.

The establishment of the IBNE institute aims to strengthen research synergies between members and to create core facilities for research and development. The IBNE can be considered the reference for  biomedical engineering research in Iceland.
