Biomaterials are rightly seen as advanced materials with the added dimension of biocompatibility. Their development is thus a complex task requiring multi-disciplinary groups both in the clinical and technical fields. In this context, the contacts established and the actions undertaken by the Biomaterials Group of the Council of Europe and the European Materials Research Society have resulted in the creation of a European Network of laboratories to study, evaluate, and develop biocompatible and biofunctional biomaterials. These European intensive courses precisely promote and develop specific teaching indispensable for future progress. The 22 contributions in this volume are intended for all those having a common interest in health care and materials and for all investors in innovation and high technology.
