Developing countries ask for help with research ethics capacity-building
Ministers and scientists from developing countries asked for help from the European Union in developing their approach to research ethics at a conference in Brussels on 15 May.
Speakers emphasised the need for assistance in capacity-building, training, and ultimately the drafting of guidelines. In response, EU Science and Research Commissioner Janez Potocnik emphasised the EU's strong research collaboration with partner countries, and said that it would get even stronger in the Seventh Framework Programme (FP7). He also noted the EU's experience of assisting with capacity-building, particularly in the context of helping candidate countries to prepare for accession to the EU.
