European Scientists Call For Better Legislation on Genome-Edited Crops

A report released by All European Academies (ALLEA) highlights the
latest scientific evidence and safety ofgenome edited cropsas well as
their potential to help alleviate agricultural challenges. Despite these
findings, scientists in Europe are still concerned that legislation by
the European Union will impede research, causing the continent to fall
behind the other parts of the world where regulations are more open to
the new technology.

The report is a summary of the discussions made in the public
symposium/Genome Editing for Crop Improvement,/ held in Brussels in
November 2019 and attended by scientific experts, policy makers, civil
society organizations, and other relevant stakeholders to assess and
discuss the impact of the EU ruling on present research and development
in genome editing for plant breeding. Among the topics included in the
report are the economic and social implications of genome editingfor
crop improvement, and the legal challenges in readdressing the EU court
decision of 2018 by legislative means.
