Ethics, Research & Health

Scientific research and technological development make a major contribution to the integral development and the quality of life of human beings, especially, but not only, in the area of health where new therapeutic options become increasingly available. They are also an important motor of economic growth. COMECE chiefly covers the ethical issues that arise at the EU level in the ambits of health, research, new technologies and the associated socio-ethical components.

COMECE is assisted in this mission by a Working Group on Ethics.
