Inhoud: This article focuses on the ethics of funding human embryonic stem cell research within the Sixth Framework RTD Programme of the European Communities (2003-2006). It presents and analyzes the arguments and the attitudes of the actors which took part in the relevant negotiations (2001-2003), especially the 'Conservative' and the 'Liberal' group within the Council of Ministers. Having outlined the present situation, possible future thrusts are indicated such as possible breakthroughs in research using adult stem cells proving equally effective to cure diseases such as Alzheimer's or Parkinson's or diabetes. This development could make the use of embryonic stem cell research less urgent or obsolete. But we should also keep in mind that the demand for 'in vitro fertilization' as a result of the weakening reproductive efficiency of sperm will probably increase and therefore fuel the discussion regarding the use of spare embryos. Therefore the direction of developments cannot be foreseen with certainty at present. Regarding the next Framework RTD Programme (2007-2013), the worst-case scenario would be if this stem cell research issue were to impede the work of the Council and therefore unnecessarily delay its start.
