The IFMBE maintains an awards program to recognize every three years on the occasion of the World Congress individuals for their contributions to Biomedical Engineering. There are currently two awards: (1) the Zworykin Award, named after the IFMBE Founder President Professor V. K. Zworykin; (2) the Otto Schmitt Award. The selection of awardees is made by the IFMBE Awards Committee. There will be a new award that will be given out during WC2015 in Toronto, that is the IFMBE John A. Hopps Distinguished Service Award.
In addition to its own awards program, IFMBE also participates in the IUPESM awards program. IUPESM honors individuals with its IUPESM Awards of Merit which recognize every three years a Medical Physicist and a Biomedical Engineer who have established distinguished careers in Medical Physics and Biomedical Engineering, respectively. The IFMBE Awards Committee acts as IFMBE Sub-committee to the IUPESM Awards Committee and is responsible for the selection of the Biomedical Engineer to be awarded.
