It is a great pleasure to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the International Society ofBionic Engineering (ISBE) and a very good reason to start special activities.
The aim of ISBE is to create an international platform for scientific exchange on knowledge and questions about the fascinating aspects of bionics. Building a large network requires many people who are very motivated and committed to making this idea fly. Special thanks go to them.
The ISBE is the only international association that brings together different nations worldwide for the science of bionics, regardless of language, nation and origin. In the 10 years since it was founded, our Society has not only grown in terms of the number of members and the numberof countries involved, there has also been good and successful progress in expanding its activities. These include the major international congresses, the workshops in various countries, the awards for particularly outstanding students, the establishment of a youth representative body that has meanwhile organized its own congresses, the appointment of fellows, the successful establishment of our journal, the integration of industrial companies and of course an attractive one Website. Many activities that characterize a living society.Such activities cannot be carried out without funding. Therefore, thanks go to Jilin University for the financial support of the work of the ISBE.
But thereis still a lot to be done in the next few years in order to further intensify the network and thus establish international cooperations.
