EC-sponsored research on safety of generically modified organisms-A review of results

Funded under: FP5-LIFE QUALITY

Abstract

In the current debate on the use of GM technology in agriculture, food and the environment, it is sometimes suggested that we lack knowledge of possible impacts and how to handle them. The primary objective of this review is to demonstrate how the EC has tackled this need; to show that it has made a sustained effort, building up a sizeable community of researchers and contributing to the world's fast-accumulating knowledge and experience in the field. The second objective is to communicate these results, including an inventory of the research groups that generated them. In this field it is particularly important that scientists in different countries know who else is working on their topic, so that they can collaborate to gain efficiency and added value.
