Civil society organisations send a further letter to Jean-Claude Juncker
19 August 2014 Several organisations including Testbiotech have again criticised the creation of the post of chief scientific adviser (CSA) to the European Commission. In the letter published today concerns are voiced that the position of CSA is “fundamentally problematic as it concentrates too much influence in one person”.
Anne Glover advocates genetically engineered plants
31 July 2014 In a letter which was signed by Testbiotech, several NGOs are calling on the upcoming President of EU Commission, Jean-Claude Juncker, not to nominate a chief scientific adviser again. The position of EU chief scientific adviser was created in 2011, and Anne Glover from Scotland was nominated. Since then Glover has several times spoken out publically in favour of genetically engineered plants for food production.
