About us

What are the consequences of genetic engineering for humans and the environment? From a critical point of view, Testbiotech provides information and scientific expertise on the risks associated with these technologies, that is completely independent of the biotech industry.

In this way, we help to strengthen the decision-making competence of politicians and society.

Testbiotech is a registered non-profit organisation, it regularly publishes annual reports and is registered in the EU Transparency Register. Our institutional donors are listed on our website.

Testbiotech wurde 2008 als Institut für unabhängige Folgenabschätzung in der Biotechnologie gegründet.
