This year BEA has a new event!

After the Thesis presentation held by the Bioengineering section of DEIB, BEA wants to put every student in search of a thesis topic in contact with Phd students, with a series of dedicated events.
It will be an informal event, held in multiple days, in which the speakers, after a brief introduction, will answer your questions about topics, modality and general questions about the laboratories.
If you want to partecipate, here are the Zoom links, organized by date and topics. The event will start on the 27/11/2020 and will continue the week after from 30/11/2020 to 4/12/2020. The events start at 6 p.m. and last approximately 2 hours:
•Computational Biomechanics Lab.
• Experimental Biomechanics Lab.
• Neuroimaging lab.
• SpinLabs
• SimLab40
• Respiratory Lab.
• Microfluidinamics Lab.
• Labs
• Take Care Lab.
• NearLab.
• CartCasLab


“Informe yourself, donate, save”

Nobody has the power on someone else’s life, but each of us has the great privilege to donate to give the possibility of living to someone else who is living surrounded by illness.
We donate a smile in order to let other people to wipe their faces from tears , we donate a drop of blood in order to fill someone else’s life.
A simple thought and a drop of blood are able to rigive the life responsibilities to who is risking to lose it.

BEA, the Biomedical Engineering Association, in collaboration with “Amici del Policlinico Association “(ODV blood donors), Aido and Admo, is organizing a seminary to bring students closer to the world of donation, specifically donation of Blood, Organs and Marrow Bone. During the conference, the associations will present themselves and they will explain the importance of donation, the eligibility criteria to become a donor and the path of the donor himself.
There will be a marrow donor, a organs’ donor parent and a transplanted patient who will testimony how easy it can be to become donors and to give someone else the chance to live or to improve their lives.
Finally, there will be three stands for those interested in becoming donors.

WHEN: Monday 9 DECEMBER, 6.15 pm
WHERE: class 3.0.3 (EX S.0.2)

We are waiting for you!

BEaSpeaker is the name we’ve chosen for our new project. It’s born from our brand new idea to promote open discussions about a series of topics we’ll have the opportunity to think about, to choose and to face together. 

The first event will be held on Tuesday October 29 with the partecipation, as a guest, of a nuclear engineering student of PoliMi who has been divulgating and writing scientific articles officially for Scientificast for some time. 

The topic he suggested is hadrontherapy… Don’t you know what it means? Do you want to learn more? Come and discover it!

When? Tuesday October 29 at 18.15

Where? Plaza Andaluza – Via Antonio Grossich, 2, (M2 Lambrate), Milano


Our starting point is the idea that each of us, somehow, can become mouthpiece of a message, an experience, a thought, and from this small belief may initiate a series of meetings to have the possibility to listen to the stories of your guests and at the same time create a space of open expression and communication.



Dear students (and not only), after the success of September, our BEAperitivo come back on October too! Those who followed us last year, already know the location since we will be hosted by our friends of Maia Bistrot!

It will be an inevitable night with tons of food, good music and especially funny games. We’re not going to reveal anything with the expection of a small partecipation cost which is going to be even smaller for our members. Figured out why? If you didn’t, then xome to discover it!

Moving on to relevant information:

Hello everyone!

Since we’re all engineering students, we all aim to innovate and improve the existing technology. And, as biomedical engineers, we often deal with illness, injuries, prevention and diseases in general, focusing on how to solve health related problems. What we usually miss, however, is an extremely relevant part of medical research: how to deal with people. Do we really know, perhaps, what’s behind a clinical trial? What to consider when we’ll be actually developing tools which affect lifes? How will the technology of the future fit with our routine ?

To learn more about the topic, save the date! May 7th, 5.30pm-7pm, room 9.1.2 :

TALK: Ethics and Biotechnologies

Held by Prof. Sergio Cerutti, Head of Ethics Committee of IEO and Cardiologico Monzino, Vice-Head of the Ethics Committee of Politecnico di Milano (and most cited Professor of the university according to Google Scholar) who will talk about “Ethical problems in Biomedical Engineering for the Advances of Health Technologies ” and Prof. Daniele Chiffi, teacher of the course Ethics and Technology, who will talk about “Clinical equipoise and Research Ethics”.

It is a good chance to know more in deep about research and development in real life, other than a very important, yet often underrated topic, so we hope many of you will be able to attend!

09/05/19 - 13/05/19

Have you ever wondered how biotechnologies will change our lives? How far can we push ourselves? What impact will we have? Many students are going to graduate and do a job that in few years might be really different.

IMPACTSCOOL was born from the idea of stimulating and educating people, in a critical and conscious way, on the possible impacts that technologies might have on our future. Knowing the potential of exponential technologies and learning how to use it could be an extraordinary resource. This is why Impactscool organizes workshops, events and debates for free, in schools and universities, about topics such as artificial intelligence, genetics, robotics, virtual reality and 3D printing, and the impacts that they can have on our lives.

BEA organizes a workshop for you with Impactscool!
WEDNESDAY ’20 MARCH from 3.00 pm in AULA S.1.8, we are waiting for you!


The BEAziende events cycle takes you to visit the AB MEDICA! The company was founded in 1984 by Aldo Cerruti, still president of the company, and today is not only a leader in the production and distribution of medical technologies but also a reference point for surgical robotics and for technological innovation in health.

Four devices will be presented to the alumni during the visit:

– The Da Vinci Xi robot: the most advanced minimally invasive surgery technology available on the market that allows extreme freedom of movement;

– Xi console and simulator: control center of the Da Vinci Xi system;

– Lapsim: system that includes an advanced pressure feedback technology combined with first-level graphics and detailed instructions, for an immersive, multi-sensory training experience and as close as possible to reality;

– Mako: a high-tech robotic platform for prosthetic surgery in the orthopedic field.

Participants (max 40-45 people) will be divided into 4 groups and will visit the company simultaneously.

The visit will last approximately 2 hours.
