  • [01] Inventions biotechnologiques - La Commission modifie sa proposition suite à l'avis du Parlement européen

    La Commission européenne vient d'adopter une proposition modifiée de directive relative à la protection juridique des inventions biotechnologiques pour prendre en compte les amendements adoptés par le Parlement européen le 16 juillet 1997. Comme annoncé par Mario MONTI, commissaire au Marché unique lors du débat en plénière, la Commission reprend 65 des 66 amendements votés par le Parlement européen, notamment tous ceux ayant trait à la dimension éthique des inventions biotechnologiques. Maintenant le clonage humain est explicitement interdit, de même que toute intervention dans l'identité génétique germinale. Un comité indépendant sera chargé d'évaluer tous les aspects éthiques de la biotechnologie dès l'adoption de la directive.

    [02] Joaquín Cortés hosts dance workshop for the European Year Against Racism

    Joaquín Cortés, the world renowned Spanish flamenco dancer, will hold today in Madrid a unique dance workshop for young dancers to mark the European Year Against Racism. The class will bring students from nearly every country in the European Union to Madrid. The aim of the workshop is to show that young people with shared interests, but from different backgrounds and cultures can work together on a concrete project with tangible results. Padraig Flynn, European Commissioner with responsibility for Employment and Social Affairs, said, "I am delighted that Joaquín Cortés is lending his outstanding talents towards supporting the European Year Against Racism."
