Cost Action FA804: Molecular Farming

This COST (European Cooperation in Science and Technology) action aims at providing a virtual coordination center at a pan European level to address several issues related to Molecular Farming. Enabling exchange of technology and technical knowhow between scientists with expertise/funded activities and scientists who are just initiating programs in Molecular Farming. Together they will sustain and broaden the scientific basis of European plant research through coordination of infrastructures of plant biomass production, manufacturing, downstream processing, purification, product validation and quality control, clinical trials, IP and regulatory issues. In addition, the action seeks at involving key institutions from the developing countries initially via their participation to the annual work group meetings and workshop.

The outcome of the Action will be a sustainable European plant Molecular Farming community with clear frameworks for regulatory, biosafety and IP issues.
