Abstract

Writing the second edition of the Handbook of Clinical Engineering is also a great opportunity to reflect on the several achievements made by biomedical engineering (BME) in the past 20 years. In fact, the first edition of this book was designed at the end of the 1990s and published in 2004. After 20 years, the scenario in which this book is conceived is significantly different. One of the main differences is in the extent to which BME is recognized from international policy-makers. This opens novel opportunities for BME and requires BMEs to take more responsibility in the way they contribute to face socioeconomic challenges. Understanding this change is a fundamental step toward the designing of BME education in the next decades.
