Community Research and Development Information Service - CORDIS


The first issue of the Newsletter published in February 2003 has been well received by many readers and your comments and suggestions encouraged us. The European Group on Ethics has taken the initiative to publish this Newsletter in order to facilitate a closer collaboration with and between National Ethics Committees.
The Newsletter can become a tool for this purpose in the sense that firstly it may be a way of identifying who is working on what problems, and secondly it may help to initiate contacts among those who are working in the same area, or in related areas.
Within a few months, on 1st May 2004, ten new countries will join the EU. The need to facilitate contacts and exchanges is therefore greater than ever.
In this second issue, we welcome contributions from EU or future EU Member States as well as non European countries and other international organisations involved in bioethics like the Council of Europe. We hope that this second issue of �Ethically Speaking� will induce numerous and fruitful contacts between all these contributors.
