Community Research and Development Information Service - CORDIS


Since the creation of the first national ethics committee in France in 1993, many national instances have been set up. Even if these committees may differ in their composition or working methods, they are all independent bodies and have a consultative role in advising decision-makers.
The issues addressed by these instances reflect the questions and concerns largely shared by all European and non-European citizens. Therefore, it may be beneficial for all to share experience and exchange information on the work already carried out on specific issues.
The objective of this newsletter, initiated by the secretariat of the European Group on Ethics, is to facilitate these exchanges.
