Interventions from the Floor:



The eFORESEE Biotechnology Pilot is a foresight exercise, which aims to substantially increase the biotechnology component of the maltese marketplace by 2015. The main objective is to produce a plan to develop the fledgling Maltese Biotechnology Industry into a core sector of the Maltese economy by 2015 through a collaborative venture between academia, the public and private sectors and society. Biotechnology is presently one of the fastest growing industry in the world. Through this project, MCST will develop its proposals for a national biotechnology strategy that will provide the basis for the national investment of resources in this area and also help to attract foreign direct investment.

The Managing Secretary is Ms Dorita Galea,
