The mission of the IEB

Confronted with the questions concerning health and life, people are often forced to make a choice when it comes to certain medical techniques, human suffering and modes of thinking. The answers to be given require thorough study and mature consideration. That is the reason why the European Institute of Bioethics, with the support of its Scientific Committee, aims at giving everybody a chance to explore the field of bioethics in order to understand more fully all the social issues which are at stake.

The EIB is the point of reference concerning various bioethical questions (legislation, press articles, data on associations, meeting places, academic reflection, etc.) and specialises itself in the field of conscience clauses (thorough studies, data collection, contact making, etc.).
