ESBiomech24 Congress in Edinburgh

Membership news

Our membership is increasing more and more. After the 21st Congress held in Prague, the number of applications has substantially increased. Total membership is now well over 1000 (1080 members in total).

A very warm welcome to the 168 new members who have joined us since Spring 2015:

This round a significant number of new individual applications for membership came from the Industry (whereas most of ESB members come from Academia).  This includes both people from manufacturers of research equipment and software (which are traditionally close to the ESB), but also people involved in R&D in the medical devices industry.  We believe this is a sign of the relevance of the ESB not only in a research environment, but also in a translational context.

In addition, a few Active Members this year became Senior Members of the ESB, we thank these members for continuing to providing an extremely valuable contribution to the ESB.

Corporate Members

Corporate members are provide valuable financial support to the society.  This for instance enables the ESB to provide more travel grants for students to attend the yearly meeting, and allowed creation of the Mobility Awards.

We have one new Corporate member: Nobel Biocare, based in Switzerland, part of Danaher corporation.  Nobel Biocare operates in the field of innovative implant-based dental restorations, and includes a large R&D department with an interest towards biomechanics.  More companies that participated in the ESB congress in Prague have been encouraged to join, and some already applied.

Analysis of the distribution of membership

The ESB has now 1080 members from 51 countries, including several non-European countries. Membership includes 31% female participation.  While the majority of members are settled in their professional career, the ESB has nearly 30% student members.
