  • Examples of demonstration projects in the life sciences programmes: Volume 1 (fourth framework programme): Biotechnology, agriculture and fisheries, biomedicine and health


This is the first publication describing the first generation of demonstration projects, established within the three specific programmes for research, technological development and demonstration (Biotechnology, Biomedicine and Health, Agriculture and Fisheries) managed by the Life Sciences and Technologies Directorate (DG XII-E) of the European Commission. The projects are presented by means of a project summary (including a description of the current state of knowledge which allows for undertaking a demonstration phase), a statement of the demonstration objectives of the project, an account of the roles of each of the partners (either as technology producers or as technology users), and a reference to the target groups identified in each case. In addition, each project includes a declaration from its coordinator stating why the undertaking of a demonstration phase was necessary, important or useful for the achievement of the exploitation plans.
