Report from the Commission [...]: Life Sciences and Biotechnology - A Strategy for Europe, Third Progress Report and Future Orientations, COM(2005) 286 final

Funded under: FP6-LIFESCIHEALTH

Abstract

In January 2002, the Commission adopted a Strategy for Europe on Life Sciences and Biotechnology, consisting of two parts - policy orientations and a 30-point plan to transform policy into action. It sets out what is needed from the Commission and the other European Institutions, while also recommending actions for other public and private stakeholders.
The Commission intends to report regularly on the progress made. The Commission adopted its second progress report on 7 April 2004, which highlighted the progress made but also pointed out delays in some areas.
This Communication is the third such response. As last year, this report is supported by a Commission Staff Working Paper, which provides detailed information on the implementation of the action plan.
