High level on-line event on "New genomic techniques  - the way forward for safe and sustainable innovation in the agri-food sector" - 29 November 2021

The European Commission is organizing a high-level event to provide a forum for a transparent and constructive debate on how the EU could develop a regulatory framework on plants obtained by certain new genomic techniques (targeted mutagenesis and cisgenesis) that combines high levels of safety while reaping the benefits of innovation. Three panels will discuss the contribution of new genomic techniques to sustainability, risk assessment as well as traceability/labelling of products resulting from new genomic techniques.

Enabling genome editing to make Europe’s agriculture more sustainable

The WGG (Wissenschaftlerkreis Grüne Gentechnik e.V, represented by Prof. Klaus Jany) together with the AFBV (Association Française des Biotechnologies Végétales) has published a position paper on the regulation of genome-edited plants in the European Scientist. The Society for Plant Biotechnology supports this proposal.
