The Cell Factory is one of the six Key Actions of the Quality of Life and Management of Human Resources Programme, which is part of the Fifth Framework Programme for RTD of the European Community (1998-2002). This volume contains summaries of the 78 RTD projects that were selected for funding after the third and last call for proposals launched in 2000 and having two deadlines in 2001. This volume also covers the other types of projects and initiatives supported by the Cell Factory, i.e. Accompanying Measures, Training Fellowships and SME Support Measures. Together with (Volume 1) this covers the entirety of activities funded by the Cell Factory in FP5.

The objective of the Cell Factory is to support research activities that aim at the integration of innovative research and technologies with their exploitation by industry and/or other socio-economic entities in the fields of health, environment, agro-industry, agro-food and high value added chemicals. The Cell Factory promotes an environment in which scientific results can be rapidly exploited and transformed into products and processes of interest to society.

All the summaries contained in this volume will shortly be available online at:
