Murdoch University, ISAAA Inc, and partners aim to assist both small and large-scale exporters in understanding the potential of gene editing for crop improvement, and the issues related to trade in gene-edited produce. Thus, a two-day international meeting titled International Conference on Gene-edited Crops is being organised on April 26-27, 2023 at The Shine Dome, ACT, Australia.
Roundtable discussions will be conducted featuring key stakeholders on regulatory and policy considerations for gene editing in agriculture (resulting in an outcome document). The discussions will cover the state of play of gene-edited crop regulation, existing trade and non-trade barriers, and the pathway of regulatory alignment/harmonisation. This discussion will provide a valuable document to advise diplomats on science-policy matters and regulatory stakeholders to help advance regulatory alignment.
The conference is open to scientists, farming peak bodies, R&D corporations, diplomats, international organisations, crop breeding companies, the food industry, investors, regulatory organisations, IP specialists, Commonwealth Government Department stakeholders, and trade-related bodies.
