research*eu RESULTS PACK – Exploiting opportunities and addressing the challenges of biotech in the Agri-Food sector

The latest research*eu RESULTS PACK – a collection of articles on EU-funded projects dedicated to a specific field of scientific research – is now available in free, accessible PDF. This brochure introduces you to 7 EU-funded projects that are at the forefront of exciting biotech developments and new discoveries within the Agri-Food sector.

Food and Natural Resources

Biotech solutions for the Agri-Food sector encompass a range of modern techniques and tools, which can help with understanding the fundamental mechanisms of the basis of life and be used to provide substantial benefits to farmers, consumers and the environment. To this end, there is a need for an in-depth knowledge of the impacts of new technologies, addressing the needs and concerns of different stakeholders and society at large. This also requires transparent and accurate communication on scientific and technological advances and the broader engagement of different players to ensure that both opportunities and challenges are not overlooked. This is why the European Commission has been highly committed to stimulating an informed and open political debate amongst all interested stakeholders on how the EU can both benefit from modern biotechnologies and innovation in the Agri-Food sector, whilst maintaining high safety standards. Alongside informed policymaking, the EU has also supported, through the FP7 and Horizon 2020 framework programmes, ambitious research projects that are at the forefront of exciting biotech developments and new discoveries within the Agri-Food sector. Seven such innovative and cutting-edge projects are featured in this brochure.
