Short Description:

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-makers and consumers. The network will also ensure compatibility with other international databases in Europe or beyond European borders, such as BIOETHICSLINE or databases run by the Council of Europe, the FAO, or WHO. 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.
