The paper deals with development of bioinert and bioactive biomaterials, different application of structural materials, including metallic materials, nanomaterials, nanostructured materials, biomaterials, ceramics, polymers, hybrid materials, functional graded materials, composites. Also are discussed multi-functional engineering materials with gradient properties, engineering materials for challenging application conditions, including aggressive environment and lightweight, multi-material (hybrid) systems where advanced materials are combined with more conventional / structural materials and materials production or joining technologies. Interdisciplinary approach to biomedicine materials research and production is very promising and horizontal cooperation of different national technology platforms is discussed
