Final Report - BIOSAFENET (Biosafety Research Communication Network)

Project ID: 43025
Funded under: FP6-FOOD

Abstract

Genetically modified organisms (GMOs) are much talked about in the scientific world, but GMO safety research - and in particular its results - is not. Advocates seeking to make GMO biosafety research known are now pushing for its recognition at national, European and global levels. Biosafety research must be presented to policymakers and the wider public in a comprehensible yet constructive way.

BIOSAFENET was a project that aimed to guarantee Europe's consistent and effective initiatives in biosafety research, by bringing GMO biosafety to the surface. BIOSAFENET's strategic objective was to contribute to the information and dialogue on the scientific issues related to GMO biosafety. Their final report concludes that they were successful in providing a platform for information and discussion on biotechnology.
