The accession of Spain and Portugal to club of the ecu group in January 1985 not just introduced new energy to the ecu initiative, yet served as a robust reminder of the wider dimensions of the Spanish- and Portuguese-speaking worlds. A reinforcement of Europe's common and historic interna­ tionalism of outlook used to be relatively suitable within the context of biotechnology; for the subtle multi-disciplinary clinical base, and different huge software components, strength on biotechnol­ ogy an internationalism either for entry to medical potential, and for entry to around the globe markets. Such was once the explanation for 'SOBELA': a 'Seminar on Biotechnol­ ogy in Europe and Latin America', which in April 1987 introduced a few 50 Latin American marketers, policy-makers and educational leaders to Europe and to Brussels. on the Commission's Borschette convention Centre, they heard shows from 11 of the group Member States, each one emphasising its strengths in bio­ know-how and its curiosity in selling business collaboration with companies in Latin the United States. The seminar used to be opened by means of speeches from Vice-President Karl­ Heinz Narjes on behalf of the fee, and by way of His Excellency Luis Ramiro Alfonsin of Argentina, senior Latin American diplomat in Brussels. within the remaining consultation, Directors-General Paolo Fasella (Science, study and improvement, DG XII) and Jean Durieux (External kinfolk, DG I) welcomed Their Excellencies the ambas­ sadors from Argentina, Mexico, Brazil, Uruguay and Colombia.

The interest level and commitment to biotechnology varies from Sanofi's state of the art competence in rDNA and expression systems, to a straightforward requirement for better process control in the cheese industry. 4 The Federal Republic of Germany After Helmut Zeittrager Introduction The government of the FRG was one of the first to recognise the strategic significance of biotechnology. By 1974 the BMFT (Bundesministerium fUr Forschung und Technologie) had already begun the promotion of biotechnology.

Twenty six Belgian research teams participate in the European Commission's Biotechnology Action Programme, BAP. In the industrial sector, involvement in biotechnology is keen, although Belgian firms are active predominantly in traditional biotechnologies in the food, pharmaceutical and agricultural areas. Involvement in the new biotechnologies of gene manipulation and advanced bioprocessing is concentrated in the pharmaceutical industry, although exceptions such as Plant Genetic Systems have achieved world renown.

To achieve these ends the BMFT has instituted a process of consultation with Deutschen Forschungsgemeinschaft, DFG, the federal science research funding body; Max-Planck-Gesellschaft, the very wealthy research foundation with institutes both in Germany and abroad; and the Verband der Chemischen Industrie, VCI, the German Chemical Industries Association. In addition to the broad themes outlined earlier, the BMFT has identified several specific objectives, some of which are detailed in Table 1, above.
