We are doing science for policy
The Joint Research Centre (JRC) is the European Commission's science and knowledge service which employs scientists to carry out research in order to provide independent scientific advice and support to EU policy.
The workshop is organized in the context of phase IV of the project “Towards Global Harmonisation of GMO Analysis by Creating and Supporting Regional Networks of Excellence” carried out by the JRC in the frame of the DG SANTE 'Better Training for Safer Food Programme' (BTSF). In line with the aim of the project and as follow up to previous activities conducted in the MENA region, the workshop will be an opportunity for regional participants to review the status of GMO analysis in the region as a basis for tackling technical and organisational aspects for further enhancing GMO-analysis capacities in the MENA region.
More specifically the workshop will be an occasion to:
Present and discuss the result of phase 1 of the 'MENANGL GMO screening project'
Plan and launch phase 2 of the project
Discuss regional midterm priorities and regional approaches
