The Task Force


The challenging mission of the EC-US Task Force is to anticipate the needs of tomorrow’s science, today. This requires effective transatlantic communication and collaboration.

The Task Force is a transatlantic grouping, whose activities are designed to bring European and American researchers closer together.

It unites distinguished researchers and leading figures from the world of biotechnology on both sides of the Atlantic.

The Task Force hosts annual meetings and focussed workshops at which these experts work together to exploit European and US potential in this important field.
