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.

Editorial Principles

GMO-Compass has received financial support from the European Commission under the Sixth Framework Programme (2005-2007), from the Green Biotechnology Europe (GBE) Unit of EuropaBio, the EU association for bioindustries (2007), and from the German Federal Ministry of Food, Agriculture and Consumer Protection (BMELV) (2007-2008).

  • This website is the work of independent science journalists. The writers of GMO Compass are not contractually restricted and exercise journalistic freedom in the selection and presentation of the website's content. Statements conveyed by GMO Compass are not necessarily identical to those held by the European Commission, other EU agencies or GBE.
  • The task of GMO Compass is to collect objective, science-based information on the use of genetic engineering in the agri-food industry and present it to the public in a way that is easy to understand and readily accessible.
  • GMO Compass is not decidedly "for" or "against" genetic engineering. The website does not seek to discourage the use of genetic engineering in food and agriculture, nor does it seek to promote it. Rather, the goal is to contribute to the informed, autonomous development of opinions and encourage responsible debate.
  • The editorial board of GMO Compass restricts itself to reputable, publicly available sources including databases, public institutions, scientific literature, and press agencies.
