This brochure (version: October 2012) presents the activities of the OECD "Working Group on Harmonisation of Regulatory Oversight in Biotechnology" and the "Task Force for the Safety of Novel Foods and Feeds”.
The STI Outlook reviews the key policy trends and performance of OECD countries and major emerging economies in a number of areas related to science and innovation based on the latest information and indicators. The policy and country profiles in the 2012 edition highlight the expected contributions of science, technology and innovation to a sustainable and lasting recovery from the economic crisis.
Harmonisation of Regulatory Oversight in Biotechnology Series: the new issue on the biology of Cucurbita L. species (squashes, pumpkins, zucchinis and gourds) is now available. Given the production and use of these vegetable crops worldwide, this document should be of interest for many readers.
Novel Food and Feed Series: the revised SOYBEAN document on composition (key nutrients, anti-nutrients, toxicants and allergens) is now available. It replaces the original 2001 document. Given the growing importance of soybean commodities in food and feed worldwide, it should be of interest for many readers.
Based on case studies, this book presents lessons and good practices on a range of governance mechanisms used for international co-operation in science, technology and innovation to address global challenges.
