Forty years separate the emergence of Biomedical Engineering in a meeting in Paris at UNESCO in 1959 from its recognition together with Medical Physics in 1999 by the International Council for Science. The main problems of definition and of identity of Biomedical Engineering as a scientific discipline are discussed and the different steps which have favoured this recognition are outlined.
