Improving information systems in Europe: EURETHNET
Medicine, Health Care and Philosophy: A European Journal 2003; 6(1): 67-69
The efforts of the European Commission to create a "European Research Area" in the field of biotechnology are accompanied by a growing demand for an ethical discourse. Cultural differences between the European Union's member states create a vital need to improve bioethical information structures in Europe so as to foster European bioethics discourses and to cope with ethical pluralism. Responding to the need for an increased European contribution to the international discussion on ethics in medicine and biotechnology, some of Europe's leading bioethics institutions have joined forces to establish the international network "EURETHNET". 18 partners from nine European countries agreed to develop an information network and knowledge base in the field of ethics in medicine and biotechnology. This short communication displays the aims, scope and realisation of the network.
