Abstract

The Federation of European Biochemical Societies, which came into being just over three years ago, will have a profound impact on the development of biochemistry in Europe and in the rest of the world. For this reason, the Council of the International Union of Biochemistry has viewed the growth of the Federation with considerable satisfaction. Closer cooperation among European biochemists was set in motion through the initiative of the Biochemical Society several years ago to hold an annual joint meeting with some of its sister societies on the Continent. With considerable foresight the Biochemical Society eventually proposed the setting up of a federation of biochemical societies in Europe, a proposal that was warmly endorsed by representatives of several Continental societies.
