Environmental Biotechnology R&D
The lack of clear, practical and internationally agreed guidance on how to manage and evaluate the development of Environmental Biotechnology R&D starting from the laboratory research up to the field application in the open environment, presents a major barrier that impedes further development of Environmental Biotechnology. Such a situation might negatively impact public trust and public perception with regards to this sector too.
The Workshop held on 16-17 September 2010 in Rimini, aimed at building consensus on the scope of main issues that Environmental Biotechnology R&D faces and on the ways to overcome those. This project is being developed under the auspices of the OECD Working Party on Biotechnology. A summary report is forthcoming. Please click here for the agenda and presentations.
