Abstract

The relative weakness of the Community in certain areas of biotechnology is not due to an inadequate research potential, but to the fragmentation and isolation of national research and training efforts and to the absence, at Community level, of adequate concertation and support for research, development and exploitation. 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) and the Biotechnology Action Programme (BAP).
