Abstract

The Commission of the European Community is implementing several priority actions specifically designed for improving the competitiveness of European Biotechnology. One of these actions aims at the establishment of a Community network for training and research and has been executed, since 1982, in the framework of two successive Community programmes, the Biomolecular Engineering Programme (BEP) from April 1982 to March 1986, and the ongoing Biotechnology Action Programme (BAP), for the period 1985-1989. BAP, the current programme, aims at: item - the establishment of a supportive infrastructure for biotechnology research in Europe. item - the elimination of bottlenecks which prevent the exploitation by industry and agriculture of the methodologies originating from modern biology.par To this effect, BAP contributes to the development of the most promising techniques in the field of enzyme and protein engineering, genetic engineering, cell culture technology and culture collections, bio-informatics, and in-vitro pharmacological and toxicological screening. A summary of the activities of the programme is given in this volume.
