Call for funding applications from EU!

'Quality of life and management of living resources' Programme (1998 to 2002) see- 15 November 2000 Official Journal of the European Communities (2000/C 324/23). Includes call for proposals with a targeted deadline for bioethics and socio-economics research closing on 28 February 2001.

Note, contrary to the other deadlines already planned in FP5, in this one bioethics will be not in competition with other action lines of the generic activities, thus this is a promising opportunity for bioethics research.

See the EU information if you are eligible!

The deadline for letter submission (and news) to the next issue is10 January, 2001.
