"Tackling challenges together"

STEF brings together IPEM members and guests to consider the latest developments across the medical physics and clinical engineering landscape, and the major challenges that will affect healthcare sciences in the near future. 

The Forum, as IPEMs showcase Annual Conference, will also feature IPEM’s highly regarded Biennial Radiotherapy Meeting.

Whilst championing the importance of professional knowledge and innovation, identifying and raising awareness of the key challenges that lie ahead for physics and engineering in medicine and biology, it will also present an opportunity to come together in person to collaborate, innovate and accelerate knowledge and understanding as a community.

The event will take place at the University of Strathclyde, Technology & Innovation Centre, Glasgow on 28th February & 1st March 2023, and will showcase some of the most significant developments in different areas of medical physics and clinical engineering.

Keynote speakers confirmed include Professor Sir Jonathan Van-Tam MBE giving the Woolmer lecture and Professor Bas Raaymakers, of the University of Utrecht in the Netherlands, will give the John Mallard lecture.

Sessions are being built around radiotherapy, imaging and engineering, but will intentionally cut across traditional specialism boundaries, and explore the need for alignment and collaboration between healthcare, academia and industry.

Some of the grand challenges identified in IPEM’s emerging Science Leadership Strategy, such as safety and security will be discussed, particularly in the context of how tackling these challenges will require the harnessing of emerging technologies, enabling platforms and ideas expected to make a significant impact on the health and care landscape. Such trends include:

  • Alignment and collaboration
  • Smart digitization
  • Personalised (or person-centred) health
