Webinar on New Plant Breeding Techniques 

Do you work in Dutch retail, foodservices or food production and want to know more about recent developments regarding the legislation for plants (such as fruits, vegetables, grains) produced by New Genomic Techniques (Such as Nobel Prize CRISPR technique)? 

Plantum and HollandBIO invite you to an informative webinar on the recent developments regarding the legislation for plants (such as fruits, vegetables, grains) produced by certain new plant breeding techniques (otherwise known as New Genomic Techniques (such as CRISPR technology)).

In 2018 the European court ruled that all new genomic techniques fall under the GMO regulation. Last year the European Commission published a study, saying that the GMO regulation is not fit for purpose. At this moment a public consultation is open to gather input from all experts in the field on this topic.

During this webinar:  

·      Nikita Sajeev, PhD candidate, Wageningen University and Co-founder of GeneSprout Initiative will present “A look at New Genomic Techniques: What are they and why should we care?”

·      Saskia Meuffels (Ministry of Infrastructure and Water Management) and Arno Dekker (Ministry of Agriculture, Nature and Food Quality) will elaborate on the perspective from our government to potential future legislation regarding New Genomic Techniques on European and national level.

During the webinar there will be plenty of opportunity to ask questions. 

Please note that this webinar will be recorded.
