The V IFP Essay Competition will deal with Biotechnology and Health Care. Share your opinions through ELSA!

The essays should address the following question:

“Biotechnology and health care”

Biotechnology has made a huge difference in human health care and has now enabled scientists to develop products which can give quicker and more accurate tests, therapies with fewer side effects and vaccines which are safer than ever before.

Although the advantages of biotechnological applications in healthcare seem to be evident, it also raises (new) legal concerns or challenges focusing on human rights in health care, and patenting products derived from the human body.

What are the main issues and answers from a health law perspective?

The best essays will be published on the website of the website of the IFP Essay Competition.

The prizes of the competition will be provided by partners of ELSA:
