The scope of EMedIC Global includes:

  • Health screening & diagnostic devices
  • Medical monitoring & life-maintenance devices
  • Therapeutic & surgical devices
  • Rehabilitative & assistive devices

Special Category

While EMedIC Global covers all areas of medical & healthcare devices, a special category of awards will be made to winning submissions on medical devices that address the grand challenges of global health in low resource settings. Interested participants may refer to the following websites to learn more of these grand challenges.


Due to the current developments of COVID-19 and the unpredictable situation, we inform you that we will postpone EMedIC Global 2020 to take place at a later date in 19-20 November 2021. We deeply regret that CUHK BME had to make this decision. During the past few months, we have been working relentlessly on the organisation of EMedIC Global, all of you have been preparing for the competition. For CUHK BME and for us, the health and safety of all the participants, employees, visitors and volunteers is the top priority. Generally, the event will take place in a similar setting. We will keep you posted on the updates.
