Hungary in the XXI. century
A T32926) (2001
2003) (topic
: Dr. Tóthné Dr. Szita Klára)

Aim of the project

Gathering and synthetising of
relevant international and
national professional literature
dealing with biotechnology in
the aspect of the possible
effects to the environment in
the next 20 years and

Target group(s)

Persons being involved
into the research of
biotechnology and users of
biotech products (GMO)
and appliers of research

Project leading

University of Miskolc
Department of Regional

Stakeholders of biotechnology sector, interviewees, workshop participants

Partners participating in the realisation of the project

Due to the research an overview is given of the current status of biotechnology, directions of
development, trends and futureperspectives. Positions are also synthetised: EU, OECD, IPTS, EPA .
Relevant elements of the exisitng scenarios are analysed. As it has been pointed out, domestic
research is confined into narrow fields of biotechnology. The research having been carried out by us
is layed into a wider context by the application of given indicators concerning both international and
national status. Due to the method of scenario a vision is attemted to being drawn up for the next 10
15 years.
