BATS Centre: Biosafety and Sustainability
BATS Centre is a leading competence center studying the effects of biotechnology.
The main application of biotechnology is in farming (green biotechnology) and medicine (red biotechnology). Looking forward, the BATS Centre analyses possible effects on economy, ecology and society.
We are heading towards the following goals:
- that research objectives are adjusted to take account of sustainability
- that society is informed of the social effects and can then decide which limits to place
