Medical and biological engineering and science (MBES) in Europe has come a long way from the initial steps taken more than a century ago. Today, MBES is organized in national and transEuropean societies and alliances and has established firm synergistic relationships with other stakeholders. The contributions of Engineering for Health to economic growth and competitiveness in Europe are a vital ingredient for achieving the Lisbon goals. Excellence in MBES research and education has the capacity to be a dynamic and effective engine for the development of the knowledge society and economy, and a magnet for international top-quality talents. Through its activities and opportunities, Engineering for Health represents a major thrust in policy-oriented research and development and provides European added value in important areas identified as key EU policy targets in the four main programs of FP7 (2007-2013). Engineering for Health provides an essential link bridging the "bio-nano-info" themes and will play a crucial role in fostering future frontier research for improving innovation and production of new knowledge.
