The Federal Republic of Germany
The government of the FRG was one of the first to recognise the strategic significance of biotechnology. By 1974 the BMFT (Bundesministerium für Forschung und Technologie) had already begun the promotion of biotechnology. Dechema (Deutsche Gesellschaft für Chemisches Apparatwesen), an industrial representative body for the chemical industry played a role in dissemination of information and in 1978 was instrumental in founding EFB, European Federation of Biotechnology.
