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

Shaping the Future of GMO Research

The EU research project PreSto GMO ERA-Net aims to identify gaps in existing knowledge on the impacts of genetically modified organisms on environment, health and techno-economics in order to inform future research work, in particular regarding a future European Research Area Network (ERA-NET) on GMO impacts.

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

Interested experts/ stakeholders are requested to register at the project website to get access to the online-questionnaire.

The setting-up of this website was financially supported by the European Union within the European Commission’s Sixth Framework Programme from 1 January 2005 until 28 February 2007.

Impact of Bt Maize on honey bees

Does genetically modified Bt maize pose a risk to honeybees? Stephan Härtel and his team at the University of Würzburg investigated this possibility in a three-year research project. They did not find that Bt maize affected the bees' health in any of these experiments

 

No risk to butterflies from genetically modified Bt maize

A three-year research project was conducted to investigate whether butterflies could be at risk from the cultivation of genetically modified Bt maize.

 

Bt maize: Not a problem for earthworms

The The field trial recorded earthworm density and species composition and compared Bt maize to various conventional varieties. The Bt variety was not found to have any impact on earthworms.

 

Fungus-resistent barley - No effects on beneficial fungi

From 2005 to 2010 in the course of biosafety research, two genetically modified barley lines were tested in the field, greenhouse and laboratory. GMO Safety spoke with Karl-Heinz Kogel from the University of Giessen.
