Bioethics at

Since the founding of the FEWD is bioethics in a very broad sense and in an inter-and multidisciplinary approach in the center of the FEWD research. On 29 June 2001, a Bioethics Commission was established at the Austrian Federal Chancellery. The task of the Bioethics Commission is to advise the Federal Chancellor from an ethical point of view on all social, natural scientific and legal issues arising from the scientific developments in human medicine and human biology.

Because the main founder of the FEWD, Prof. Kampits is since many years vice-chairperson of this Bioethics Commission the activity of FEWD follows in many ways these research topics from a modern humanistic approach.
