Urgent decisions needed on biotechnology benefits
The Netherlands is ill prepared for the rapid developments taking place in biotechnology and is missing out on opportunities to make full use of its economic and social potentials. But as well as major opportunities, biotechnology also brings risks to people and the environment. And for that reason, the government should prepare an integrated vision and carry it through. This is the central message of the Biotechnology Trend Analysis 2023, presented today to the Dutch Government by COGEM and the Health Council of the Netherlands.
