This article was originally published in Clinica
Seventeen European science academies are to establish a science advisory council, to provide EU policy-makers with independent advice on major concerns, such as transmissible spongiform encephalopathies (TSEs). The move comes as the European Commission is urging greater international effort in tackling TSEs, including research into pre-clinical diagnosis and inactivation. It has issued a call for research proposals in this area, with a budget of E25 million ($21.5 million).
