The European Society for Biomaterials (ESB) was founded in March 1976 and became a member of the International Union of Biomaterials Science and Engineering companies (IUS-BSE) at its conception in 1979. The BSE has about today 750 members from 33 countries worldwide. BSE Journal announces the events of the company, publishes the reports of the meetings and procedures. The first modified by Jean Leray ESB conference entitled "Evaluation of Biomaterials" was held in Strasbourg, France in 1977. The conference was considered a scientific and organizational success attracting 200 participants. The Journal of Biomedical Materials Research was approved as the official journal of BSE, with a drafting committee comprising European Burny Franz, George Winter, Peter Griss and David Williams. In 1978, European companies’ biomaterials and biomechanics formed a liaison committee to promote the views of companies within the Council of Europe.
