Council of Societies

The Council of Societies (CoS) serves as the main communication and feedback channel between the International Federation for Medical and Biological Engineering (IFMBE) and its Constituent Societies.

The CoS members, consisting of one IFMBE General Assembly (GA) delegate from each Constituent IFMBE Society, are thus a subset of the IFMBE General Assembly (GA).

The CoS generally holds annual meetings that are less formal in procedures than the IFMBE GA. The CoS is subdivided into CoS Regional Groups, which are expected to meet independently in the respective Regions. The Regional Group Representatives are considered activators of initiatives, mainly, but not exclusively, related to their Region of the world and conveyors of information to and from the IFMBE Administrative Council (AC), in which they have a seat.
