Abstract

ELSA stands for Ethical, Social and Legal Aspects, and it is a common research sub-area for three specific programmes under the Fourth RTD Framework (1994-1998) in the field of Life Sciences and Technologies: Biotechnology (BIOTECH 2) Biomedicine (BIOMED 2) and Health, Agriculture and Fisheries (FAIR).

The projects described in the publication are in progress and beginning to produce results. It is envisaged that the publication of the projects' activities, in topics ranging from fundamental values in medical ethics to patenting of biotechnology and consumer choice towards genetically modified food, will help to rationalize the debate on the use of biotechnology and clarify priorities.
