BIOMED 2 was launched to support medical research activities in line with the priorities set out in the Council Decision of 15 December 1994 adopting the specific programme on Biomedicine and Health. It was one of the three specific programmes that implemented the Life sciences and technologies domain of the Fourth RTD Framework Programme.
The programme aimed to improve medical knowledge and the health of the European population, as well as increasing the competitiveness of the European health industry by strengthening the scientific basis. The priorities articulated in the Work Programme were targeted at projects that helped to realise these objectives. There was also an emphasis on promoting the transfer of research results into clinical practice.
