Strategy and Workflow

The overall strategy of the project in preparing a GMO-ERA-Net follows a step-by-step approach. PreSto GMO ERA-Net will not only map and evaluate what has already been done in risk and benefit assessment, and subsequently identify critical gaps in the current approaches and programmes. The project will also perform foresight activities that will identify future European research needs linked to the anticipated regulatory EU pipeline. Additionally it will also identify ongoing research conducted at public and private laboratories which focuses on the development of GMOs and deals with other aspects of their use (i.e. legal, ethical, techno-economic).

The chart below provides an overview on the project structure, workflow and expected results.
