At the opening of the symposium ‘Bio-Pharmaceutical Sciences: towards a university-industry partnership’, the view is expressed that universities should openly discuss their function in modern society. The distinction between fundamental and applied research has not been very fruitful. Although universities should still pursue knowledge for knowledge's sake, the university researcher is obliged to think of application of this knowledge.
