Plant Link, Mistra Biotech and Partnership Alnarp welcomes you to a seminar 7 November 2012 at Alnarp.

A SEMINAR DAY ORGANIZED BY PLANT LINK, MISTRA BIOTECH AND PARTNERSHIP ALNARP

Europe has adopted restrictive policies on genetically modified crops.This restrictive- ness has partly been dictated by a prevailing skepticism among the general public and NGOs. As a consequence the cultivation of genetically modified crops has remained limited in Europe. Still, several research groups continue to develop crops with new traits, refine breeding technologies, and develop new ways to improve crop properties with the help of biotechnology. But what are the future prospects for these projects and which is the way forward?

This seminar day will give insight on current plant biotech research in Europe, legislative processes, new technologies and farmer and public acceptance.The day will provide good possibilities to discuss the future for plant biotechnology in the EU.
