Objective

The Thematic Network will develop an information network and knowledge base in the field of ethics in medicine and biotechnology. The network is designed as a virtual unit of different databases constructed along common database structures and a core thesaurus that allow for cross-searching and comparative information research. It will make relevant sources and value-added information on the field of ethics in biomedicine and biotechnology and related legal sources available to academics, researchers, bioethical professionals, decision-rankers and consumers. The network will also ensure compatibility with other international databases in Europe or beyond European borders. The knowledge base can be accessed through a common internet portal. It shall provide exhaustive, valid and reproducible bioethical information thus enabling individuals and societies to better evaluate their options, pursue a balanced dialogue, reach qualified decisions and adopt sustainable policies.
