Development of an appropriate risk assessment and technology assessment for GMOs (GVO-TA)

Project: Research project

Project Details

Description

The statutory evaluation of genetically modified organisms (GMOs) in the course of the EU market approval process focusses on environmental and health risks. Other aspects, e.g. socio-economic, broader sustainability are sometimes being considered in the policy decision- but this is neither done in a systematic and structured way nor is this transparent. GVO-TA aims to develop a concept for pre-market evaluations with a broader scope to be used in policy contexts. Main inspirations will come from a review of technology asssement practices. The concept will then be tested in selected case studies.
