Modern biology is a cornerstone in providing solutions for global challenges in fields as divers as nutrition, health, energy and sustainability. Biology plays a central role in sustaining our common future. Handling such large, complex but delicate problems requires a professional approach. The importance of modern biology or new biology as we call it today is described in the BIO2020 document which is available on the ECBA website.
As Europe increasingly develops common standards, it is important that the professional competence of those who oversee the maintenance of standards is recognized. Academic qualifications alone have limited value.
In providing an acceptable common professional standard, the European Professional Biology requires experience in the application of knowledge, skills, attention to safety and environmental consciousness, a sense of responsibility and an ability to communicate and level of supervision received.
