Members of the Editorial Board of the Global Clinical Engineering Journal were recognized for their expertise and public service before, however, none were recognized as an officer of the Order of the British Empire honours (OBE) for services to Clinical Engineering, particularly during the Covid-19 pandemic. For bestowing this prestigious award on Professor Daniel Clark, Head of Clinical Engineering at Nottingham University Hospitals he was invited none the less but to the ceremony in Windsor Castle. Not even the 14th-century courageous archery legend Robin Hood and his band of “merry men”, who lived in Sherwood Forest and frequently clashed with the Sheriff of Nottingham, while helping the poor received such an honor. The Order of the British Empire was established by King George V in 1917 to honor those who had served in a non-combative role and expanded the Order to reward contributions to the Arts, Sciences, Charitable work, and Public Service.

We are proud to join the global clinical engineering village and the many patients in celebrating Professor Dan Clark’s Clinical Engineering work. Thank you, Dan!

The 4th ICEHTMC Congress was a Clinical Engineering success as judged by the record number of registrants = 2,000 , record number of selected abstracts = 200, record number of represented countries=125, and conducted as the first ever fully virtual international CE congress. The Congress also offered short courses/workshops, regional meetings, Global CE Summit, and Global CE day celebration that started in Guangzhou, China.

Throughout the events, members of the Global Clinical Engineering Journal Editorial Board were engaged and contributed to each section of the Congress’ program.

Among the presenters were: Yadin David, Adriana Velazquez Berumen, Jitendar Sharma, Thomas Judd, Daniel Clark, Li Bin, Saide Jorge Calil, Elliot Sloane, Nicolas Pallikarakis, Mladen Poluta, Zheng Kun, Tobey Clark, Matthew Baretich, Paolo Lago.

These were critical for the overall Congress’ achievement and reflects hugely on the expertise and commitment of the members of the Global CE Journal Editorial Board. They will appreciate hearing from you about your experience with the Congress. In recognition of the winners, and as we offered during the previous Congress, abstracts that won best category award are invited to submit the full manuscript to our CE Journal.
