National Ethics Advisory Committee / Comité Consultatif National d’Éthique (CNNE )

One of the goals of the National Ethics Advisory Committee for life sciences and health (CNNE – Comité Consultatif National d’Éthique, Paris) is to let people participate in ethical thinking and to help them to understand ethical questions and issues for instance in biometrics and nanotechnologies. To stimulate this public debate, the CCNE organize ‘Annual Ethics Days’, ‘Regional Ethics Days’, ‘Youth Forum’ and symposia as key moments in this dialogue.

CNNE is founded in 1983. France was the first country to create a National Consultative Ethics Committee. The forty members are representing the society: personalities belonging to the ‘main philosophical and spiritual families’, personalities chosen for their ‘qualifications and interest in ethical problems’, personalities from the field of research. The President is appointed by the President of the Republic for a renewable period of two years, who oversees the committee’s work. A secretary General coordinates the Committee’s work on a day-to-day basis.
