FUNDING

PROJECT DESCRIPTION

The aim of the collaborative project "ELSA-GEA" is to examine ethical, legal, socio-economic and communicative aspects as well as to assess risks tied to applications of genome editing as a new technology for crop and livestock breeding. Our project involves a close collaboration between scientists, ethicists, socio-economists and lawyers. The results of the network are published for different target groups in order to enable a broad social dialogue among citizens on the one hand, and to present decision-makers with options for regulatory or legislative action on the other.
