Abstract
    The Office for Scientific, Technical and Cultural Affairs (OSTC) helps Belgian initiatives aiming at fulfilling the objectives of the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD, Rio de Janeiro 5, June 1992). The OSTC funds research and conservation programmes, communication and accessibility initiatives as weIl as national and international co- operation. Among these initiatives, the Belgian Co-ordinated Collec tions of Micro-organisms (BCCMTM) is a good example of a programme where actions in research; access to and conservation of genetic resources, as weIl as communication, and co-operation are integrated in a successful network. The BCCM missions are the conservation and the valorisation of micro-biodiversity .In this view, this consortium develops a network of national and international contacts with public and private, for- and non-for-profit, national and interna- tional scientific institutions. The BCCM participates actively to and launched pilot projects leading to a better co-operation in the field of microbiology.
