Community Research and Development Information Service - CORDIS


The background for the project on innovation in agro-biotechnology, to which this report contributes, is the recognition of the need for a strategy for developing biotechnology research, and exploiting the results to meet the challenges facing the Community in farming, forestry and agro-industry. The context for Community intervention in this field includes not only the Commission's agricultural, agro-industrial and biotechnological RTD programmes, but also relevant Community policies and initiatives in other related areas, for example concertation activities for biotechnology in Europe, rural development, education and training programmes and the international environment in which these ought to be placed. This report, which presents one of six parallel case studies carried out during the project, examines the potential of biotechnology in addressing particular problems and goals in the area of agro-industrial development in Portugal.
