Abstract

The Biomedical and Health Research Programme 1990-1994 (BIOMED 2) of the European Commission is aiming at improving the efficiency of medical and health research development in the Member States, in particular by better coordination of the Member States. The work programme of BIOMED includes research on Biomedical Ethics and on the legal, ethical and social aspects of Biomedicine. Research on Biomedical Ethics addresses general standards for the respect of human dignity and the protection of the individual in the context of biomedical research and its clinical applications, and aims at promoting an open dialogue between all involved parties including experts from different disciplines as medicine, sciences, philosophy, theology, sociology or law as well as patient groups and the general public. One specific objective of the BIOMED Programme, in the area of Biomedical Ethics, is to address multidisciplinary methodologies, structures and transcultural approaches to solve ethical issues. The European Conference on Bioethics Research: Policy, Methods and Strategies which took place in Roma in November 1995 was held to answer to this specific objective. The proceedings are contained in this publication.
