What is key for future regulation of New Genomic Techniques (NGT)?

Expert opinions about regulation of NGT plants

20 January 2024 / Yesterday detailed insights on future regulation of NGT plants were presented in an online workshop by four experts. The topics were the risks of a deregulation of NGT plants for nature and the environment as well as the impact of patents on European breeders. There was a common understanding that the position of the rapporteur of the EU Parliament as well as the proposal of the EU Commission needs to be revised thoroughly.
