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. It is heading towards the following goals: (1)
that research objectives are adjusted to take account of
sustainability and (2) that society is informed of the social
effects and can then decide which limits to place.
