    The first Britsh team to be given liscence to conduct the research

    Hi
    In what case do we use this kind of sentence structure, S+ to be+v3. As in the following:
    In the latest developments, the first Britsh team to be given liscence to conduct the research has produced European's first cloned embryo.
    Or in what reference book I can find this sort of information??
    Thanks"

    Where did you find the quoted sentence? Did they really misspell "licence"?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    It is usually used with an ordinal number, as above with 'first'.
    "They were the first British team to be given licence to conduct the research."

    "He was the first to be eliminated from the game."
    "She was only the second woman to become an admiral."
    "Trump was the first non-politician to be elected president." "Trump, the first non-politician to be elected President, soon became a typical politician."
    "He was the third person to be chosen for the team." "Bill Smith, the third person to be chosen for the team, performed the best."

    I don't see anything special about these sentences, so I can't advise you where to look.

    And did they really write 'Britsh' and '... has produced European's first cloned embryo'?
