Focus on bioethics

The development of new technologies and their applications raise a number of important ethical questions. The European Commission supports activities aimed at studying those issues. The Seven Framework Programme ( 2007-2013) and the Theme Food, Agriculture and Fisheries, and Biotechnology stressed that these activities should be at the centre of all new key actions in order to strike a balance between scientific progress, social expectations, and ethical considerations.
