COST Action FP0905 "Biosafety of forest transgenic trees: improving the scientific basis for safe tree developement and implementation of EU policy directives"

 

'Planting the seeds of Genetically modified trees"

Session as part of the Euroscience Open Forum (ESOF) 2012 in the Convention Centre Dublin (11th – 15th July 2012). An interdisciplinary, pan-European meeting, held under the auspices of Euroscience, ESOF aims to showcase the latest advances in science and technology. The forum promotes dialogue on the role of science and technology in society and public policy as well as stimulating public interest, excitement and debate about science and technology.

Workshop | Munich | Nov. 2011

Written by Webmaster

 

Communication Workshop – Trans-COST Action – 03th - 04th November 2011, Munich, Germany
Workshop on Value Communication of Novel Agro-technologies
IBZ (Internationales Begegnungszentrum der Wissenschaften) Munich

Learning from the GM debate, it is plausible to argue that other novel biotechnological strategies are likely to be regarded as problematic risk technologies as well. If scientists only offer facts, but do not address the value laden structures of citizens´ perception as well, communication will fail. Therefore the aim of the workshop is to develop strategies for successful communication in the food sector. In order to reach this goal, we intend to invite specialists on the value-laden risk and benefit communication and provide space for the participants from the different Cost Actions to utilize the information for the development of communication strategies.

Co-organised by:
Action FA0806 “Plant virus control employing RNA-based vaccines: A novel non-transgenic strategy” (Voloudakis)
Action FA0804 “Molecular farming: plants as a production platform for high value proteins” (Oksman-Caldenty)
Action FP0905 “Biosafety of forest transgenic trees: improving the scientific basis for safe tree development and implementation of EU policy directives” (Vettori)
Action FA1006: “Plant metabolic engineering for high value Products” (Warzecha)
