    GMCC-07 is the third edition of a biannual international scientific conference on coexistence between GM and non-GM agricultural supply chains. GMCC-07, organised by the JRC Institute for Prospective Technological Studies (IPTS),  will gather the multidisciplinary scientific community involved in researching how agricultural supply chains can adapt to novel regulatory and market-driven coexistence requirements world-wide. GMCC-07 will also serve policy-makers to access the latest scientific results and identify future research needs with policy relevance.

    The Forum on Evidence-based Toxicology is organized by scientists active in the field of toxicology, life sciences, biostatistics, modelling and medicine and is supported by the JRC's Institute for Health and Consumer Protection (IHCP). The scope of the forum is to explore the concept of an “evidence-based toxicology”, following the successful example of “evidence-based medicine”, a movement which aims at transparent decision-making in medicine on the basis of the best evidence available. This is achieved by integrating expert knowledge with structured approaches of data reviewing, data grouping and meta analysis in basic science, method assessment and decision-making and similar approaches might be embraced by toxicology.
