World Biomaterials Congress Goes Virtual in 2020

Dear WBC Community

In light of the COVID-19 global pandemic, the WBC 2020 Organising Committee has decided to cancel the physical 2020 congress. However, we are thrilled to announce that WBC 2020 will now be a fully virtual congress taking place from 11-15 December 2020 – same dates, new place, all online.

We want to thank you for your continued support for WBC 2020 and we are fully committed to creating an excellent virtual congress – an online space to meet, network, and exchange knowledge in a safe and accessible manner. Please cancel any remaining bookings you may still have for travel to Glasgow.

The WBC 2020 Virtual Congress will include live streaming and pre-recorded talks, plenary lectures, workshops, e-poster sessions, industry symposia, and more. Programme and registration information will be released soon and we are delighted to announce that the registration rates will be substantially discounted in comparison to the physical event – yet with access to even more content than before. There will be no need to decide which parallel sessions you should attend, you can go to all of them! Activities as part of the programme will start in July, building to December for Biomaterials Week.

Along with the virtual congress, we will also launch the World Biomaterials Community. Each one of you will automatically become members of the community when registering for the congress. Detailed information regarding the benefits will be released soon.

We look forward to meeting you all online – be sure to visit the WBC website for more information.

  1. Hello – new member here, and new to the UK biomaterials scene. I have a general query – is there perhaps some sort of registry of commercially active biomaterials / biomedical implant companies operating in the UK available? I’m sure it’s more a case of building up a (constantly changing) picture over time, but wondered if there was some sort of rough starting list / company directory?
    Many thanks, and wonderful organisation by the way – really enjoyed the recent Future Leaders event.

Sorry, comments have closed.
