EC-US Task Force on Biotechnology Research Views: 10853
Rating: 1   [rate this resource] [report errors]

Since 1990, the EC-US Task Force on Biotechnology Research has been coordinating transatlantic efforts to guide and exploit the ongoing revolution in biotechnology and the life sciences. The Task Force was established in June 1990 by the European Commission and the White House Office of Science and Technology. This mandate has been renewed three times. The Task Force has acted as an effective forum for discussion, for coordination and for developing new ideas for the last 15 years. Task Force members are European Commission and US Government science and technology administrators who meet annually to enhance communication across the Atlantic, and to encourage collaborative research. Through sponsoring workshops, and other activities, the Task Force also brings together scientific leaders and early career researchers from both sides of the Atlantic to forecast research challenges and opportunities and to promote better links between researchers. Over the years, by keeping a focus on the future of science, the Task Force has played a key role in establishing a diverse range of emerging scientific fields, including biodiversity research, neuroinformatics, genomics, nanobiotechnology, neonatal immunology, and transkingdom molecular biology.

In January 2002, the Commission adopted a Strategy for Europe on Life Sciences and Biotechnology (COM(2002)27). This was in response to the importance attached to life sciences by the European Council. It proposes a comprehensive roadmap up to 2010 and puts the sector at the forefront of those frontier technologies which are helping to take the European Union towards its long-term strategic goal established by the: Lisbon European Council in March 2000. This strategy set by the Commission consisted of two parts – policy orientations and a 30 point plan to transform policy into action. It set out what was needed from the Commission and the other European Institutions, but also recommended actions for other public and private stakeholders. The strategy therefore provides a framework and a reference both for action undertaken by the many stakeholders concerned within their own responsibilities and for co-operation between these stakeholders.
