European Biotechnology Thematic Network Association (EBTNA) is the leading organization of biotechnology professionals in Europe. As EBTNA marks its 16th year, it cordially invites you to become a member and work together for your future development in Biotechnology.
The Thematic Network in Biotechnology started in 1996 and during these ten years four projects were presented and approved. The developed projects beginning form the first one:
1. BIOTECH - Biotechnology Thematic Network: The main aims of Biotech Network project were to co-ordinate a common effort not only at the level of European Universities but also at the level of enterprises and to create a forum between European partners of different sectors and enterprises. The objectives were to establish the industrial needs, to define course programme objectives, the course contents, the various professional profiles, to establish common criteria of evaluation, to favour the applicative use, the research and didactic integration and to promote continuous formation.
2. BIOTECHNOLOGY DISSEMINATION - Results, Dissemination by means Web site of European Biotechnology Network : The objectives of this project were the diffusion of the products inside and outside of the network by implementing and using the WEB site interactive, quality evaluation, internal and external, and revision of the existing results, newsletters production and diffusion, enlargement of the network and the analysis of academic formation in Biotechnology in the East Countries, the creation of co-operation with other TNPs as means of diffusion and of complementary activities through dedicated WEB sites.
3. BIOTECHNET - BIOTECHnology Thematic NETwork: The aims of the project were to develop a continuous education system in the area of biotechnology, to collaborate with laboratories and enterprises in order to define the subjects in which it is more important to stress formation, to devise the methodology to be used, to establish evaluation systems.
4. BIOTECHUNTE Biotechnology University Formation for Enterprises Development: The aim of the project were the relationship between education and research activities of European Institutions and Enterprises growth; the improvement of this relationship for mutual benefits; the evaluation of the didactic approaches already developed on potential job creation; the identification of good practical methodology in developing this area, the favouring of the economic development of disadvantaged areas across Europe.
