Discussing the European strategy for biotechnology and the life sciences

August 6, 2004

Brussels, 05 Aug 2004

The European Commission will host a satellite conference on 'A European strategy for biotechnology and life sciences' at the BIOnale event in Maastricht, the Netherlands, from 2 to 4 November.

Representatives from the Research DG will outline opportunities for research teams from all over the world, in particular from industry, to participate in EU funded collaborative research projects.

Researchers involved in current projects will also present their own experiences, and stakeholders will be able to discuss strategies for making the European life sciences sector more competitive. These strategies could focus on opportunities in the new Member States, regional initiatives and developing links with Asian countries. The three initiatives for European Technology Platforms in the field of life sciences - sustainable chemistry, plant biotechnology and genomics, and innovative medicines - will also be presented.
