The European Burns Association was founded in 1981 by leading burn specialists in Europe. To encourage co-operation in the field of burn care throughout the continent.

The EBA serves as a forum through which medical specialists, researchers, professions allied to medicine (PAM) and other workers come in contact to discuss aspects of burn treatment and research. In this way, expertise and knowledge are spread throughout the countries of Europe.
