Community Research and Development Information Service - CORDIS


ELSA, within the field of biomedecine and health, is aimed at analyzing the ethical, legal and social issues raised by specific applications of biomedecine and health research and at promoting a rational and balanced dialogue between the key players. It aims to understand, and respond to, public attitudes and to the diverse points of view which represent the social, religious and cultural differences in Europe. In doing so it seeks to identify fundamental values which underlie these ethical issues, and to fulfill a prospective role by identifying those issues which present new social and ethical questions.
