    ISBR activities are intended to be as broadly interdisciplinary as possible, covering the entire spectrum of pertinent research, from strictly molecular laboratory studies to field studies to socioeconomic aspects of field deployment of GMOs.

     
  •  
     

    By fostering communication and technical exchange among experts, ISBR supports the development of the science used in biosafety assessment processes and promotes constructive dialogue on important science-based biosafety issues associated with GMOs.

     

The mission of ISBR is to promote the practice and application of science in the fields of agricultural biotechnology and environmental risk analysis. In particular ISBR aims to encourage research which supports the safe and effective use of biotechnology in agriculture and food production and assists the development of the relevant policy and regulation.

EuropaBio Workshop: Back to Basics - Risk Assessment Principles for GM Plants

On the 14th and 15th of June 2016 EuropaBio organized a workshop titled: “Back to basics: risk assessment principles for GM plants”. The objective of this workshop was to re-visit the way in which food and feed risk assessments are conducted in the EU and discuss whether these risk assessments are fit for purpose. Over 90 international participants registered for the workshop representing industry, academia, EFSA, the European Commission (EC) and EU Member States (MS).
