Stakeholder input wanted: survey on research needs for assessing GMO impacts 

Shaping the Future of GMO Research

Stakeholder with interests in the risk and/or benefit assessment of Genetically Modified Organisms (GMO’s) are invited to take part in an online survey.

The aim of this survey is to identify which research needs should be prioritised, thereby contributing to the commissioning of research on the health, environment and economic impacts of GMOs.

The survey will close on 15th July 2015.

Deliberate releases for field trials



Deliberate releases of GMOs into the environment for field trials (2004-2008)


Releases of transgenic plants


Releases of other GMOs




Slovakia is required to notify the European Commission of field trials with GMOs since it joined the EU in 2004.


Only maize has been tested in field trials in 2004 and from 2007 to 2008.

Novel traits

GMO field trials in the Slovak Republic were set up to examine: insect resistance and herbicide tolerance.


Field Trials: Statistics
The EU statistics are based on the number of applications submitted.
It is possible that the statistics include rejected applications or applications that were later withdrawn.
One application can include field trials at more than one site and/or that run over the course of several years. The number of sites at which GM plants are grown is generally considerably higher than the number of applications.
