Memorandum by The Open University
I am submitting an institutional response on
behalf of The Open University to the above "call for evidence"
from the House of Lords European Union Committee, Sub-Committee
D (Environment and Agriculture) dated 23 April 2009.
The Open University wholeheartedly supports
the collective response document from the Bioscience Sector submitted
by Dr Simon Festing as it addresses all the key points and provides
evidence for or against each. It also represents the views of
a number of organisations from academia, industry, small to medium
enterprise businesses, charities and other research funders in
the UK all of which will be directly affected by the revision
of the Directive.
