Research (particularly in Life sciences and
biotechnology) will…



Develop production, management und processing of biological raw
materials from plants, animals and micro
-
organisms, i.e. in relationship
to quality, efficiency, sustainability, etc.


Create competitive advantages for all EU industries in the area of
biological Resources (agriculture, nutrition, forestry, paper, new bio
industries)

with an annual turnover of

1500 billion



fulfil

the social demand for safe and more wholesome food


create new eco

Food, agriculture


and biotechnology research:

What’s new!


Pillar 2 “Food, health and well
-
being” ensures
continuity of FP6 “Food quality and safety” research


New:

Pillar 1 “Sustainable production and management
of biological resources” and pillar 3 “Life sciences and
biotech for sustainable non
-
food products and
processes”


Some topics under pillar 1&3 partly financed in FP4 and
FP5 (BIOTECH, FAIR, QoL, etc.), but FP6 efforts
scattered and not of sufficient critical mass (some
activities under materials, energy and environment)
providing no synergies


Technology platforms in the area of plant
biotechnology, animal breeding, global animal health,
forestry, food and industrial biotechnology

30


Technology Platforms:

Policy Rationale


Boost research performance


European Research Area


3% of GDP investment target for R&D


Contribute to Growth & Competitiveness

(new start for the Lisbon strategy COM(2005)24 of

Positive impact on many other key Community
policies
