The primary goal of the European Biotechnology Network is to improve cooperation in the fields of biotechnology and the other life sciences, primarily between the 28 member states of the European Union, Switzerland and Norway. Biotech professionals from science and research, industry, academia, organisations or state agencies and authorities are invited to become involved in the network and make use of the services it provides.
As a rule, technological advances have added momentum to the trend towards globalisation. With biotechnology, the insights and steady progress in understanding basic biological processes is providing the life sciences with even more of a tailwind. In many places, the ‘biologisation’ of industry is proceeding apace.
