Get to know us

Technology applied to the field of healthcare has had a significant influence on the diagnostic and therapeutic capacity in the field of medicine. In recent times, the contribution of technology to the field of healthcare has been accelerating thanks to the technological development and the convergence of the two fields. The University of Navarra has been combining these disciplines for the last 20 years in both professor and research. 

Tecnunthe School of Engineering of the University of Navarra, has promoted the research and Transfer in the field of Biomedical Engineering by integrating them in the Center for Biomedical Engineering (CBIO) at partnership with groups and centers of the Campus of the University of Navarra in Pamplona. Specifically, there is a close partnership with the Clínica Universidad de Navarra y CIMA Center for Applied Medical research

It is worth mentioning that Tecnun was a pioneer with the first Master's Degree in Biomedical Engineering in Spain in 2007. Today, more than 200 students are being trained each year in this discipline.



Origins of the CBIO

From their beginnings, the Schools of Medicine, Science and Pharmacy have been closely related to each other due to the common nature of some disciplines. Some Departments are common to all three Schools; and their buildings, adjacent to each other, are located at campus in Pamplona. This relationship extends naturally to the Clínica Universidad de Navarra, both in the training internship of the students and in the development of leading research lines.

Throughout the 90's and the beginning of the 21st century, the natural synergy between the activities of campus in San Sebastian and Pamplona has gradually developed. This partnership is reflected in the development set of lines and projects of research in biomedical areas, such as bioinformatics, biosensors, implant-oriented micro mechanics, biomaterials, analysis and treatment of medical images, etc.

This synergy has been decisively influenced by the initiative of the researchers and the creation at campus in Pamplona of research center Applied Medicine (CIMA) and the extension in 2003 of campus in San Sebastian with a 7800 m2 building, located in the Miramon Technology Park, dedicated to cutting-edge technologies in the field of communications, electronics and micro and nanosystems.

Organisation and financing

The Biomedical Engineering Center of the University of Navarra has a flexible scientific organization chart that responds to the needs and opportunities of the biomedical field.

As can be seen in the section of areas of researchAs can be seen in knowledge , the different medical, biological and pharmaceutical specialties are combined with different areas of in technology, thus forming multidisciplinary teams with a common goal : to generate valuable solutions to problems or needs in the biomedical field.

Funding for research projects comes from a variety of sources, as is usual at the University of Navarra: the University's own funds, companies and competitive public funding programs from research (regional, national and European governments).

The Research Management Service and the scientific and general management coordinators work to facilitate the development of the projects in the organizational, financial, scientific, commercial and transfer aspects.
