Project at a Glance

PreSto GMO-ERA-Net lays the groundwork for transnational research on health, environmental and techno-economic impacts of GMOs. The project engages stakeholders throughout all stages of the project to ensure that future research in this area will also be highly relevant and meaningful from a broader societal perspective.

Although there is a large body of scientific evidence suggesting that GM products have no greater adverse impact than conventional products, this technology is still controversial on a number of levels. Additionally, new GM applications are under development and could reach the European market soon. This situation demands a timely conception of aligned research programmes that support a adequate risk and benefit analysis.

Invitation to a Survey on Gaps in Knowledge on the Impacts of GMO

We would like to invite interested experts/stake-holders to complete a questionnaire that will inform the first stage of a multi-criteria decision analysis (MCDA) model for prioritising research needs.

Interested experts/stake-holders are requested to register here to get access to the online-questionnaire.


What is an ERA-Net?

The objective of the European Research Area (ERA)-NET scheme of the European Commission is to step up the cooperation and coordination of research activities carried out at the national or the regional level in the member states and associated states.
