On the occasion of the German Presidency of the European Union Council, the German Research Foundation (DFG) and the German National Academy of Sciences Leopoldina kindly invite you to the international scientific advice conference 'Genome Editing in Europe: New Agenda or New Disputes?'.
The conference deals with genome-edited and genetically modified organisms (plants), and associated regulation. Internationally renowned experts discuss together with European policy-makers and representatives from civil society and business. The conference offers an agora for the optimal use of scientific findings in policy design, from R&I to agriculture and consumer protection, taking an interdisciplinary and international comparative approach. These are all very important aspects of the European Green Deal with its Farm to Fork strategy.
