Biotechnology Advisory Center BAC Stockholm Environment Institute httpwwwseisebiotechbachtml

The BAC was established to help meet the challenge of biosafety capacity building in developing countries. The BAC's support consists of three components: training, independent advice, and biosafety and biotechnology information exchange. The East African Regional Programme and Research Network for Biotechnology, Biosafety and Biotechnology Policy Development (BIO-EARN) is the main activity at present. The principal objective of the BIO-EARN programme is to build national capacity and competence in biotechnology, biosafety, and biotechnology policy. Selected academic and governmental institutions in Ethiopia, Kenya, Tanzania, and Uganda will receive support through a regional network.
