Introductory seminars on bioethics

September 3, 2003

Brussels, 02 Sep 2003

The European Institute for Biotechnology will host two introductory seminars on bioethics in Brussels on 9 and 14 October.

The seminars are aimed at members of the public who do not necessarily have a scientific background, but who wish to improve their understanding of how bioethical issues affect their daily lives.

The events will give an overview of bioethics, an explanation of technical terms such as stem cells and supernumerary embryos, and an analysis of press coverage and Belgian law in relation to bioethics.
