GMO (genetically modified organism) Risk Assessment and Communication of Evidence (GRACE)
Project code: JKI-SG-08-2199
Contract period: 01.06.2012 - 30.06.2016
Purpose of research: Networks and research co-ordination
The project GRACE will a) elaborate and sustainably implement a transparent framework for the review of GMOs or GM food and feed effects on environment, socio-economics and health and b) reconsider the design, execution and interpretation of results of animal feeding trials as well as in vitro studies for assessing the safety of GM food and feed. The framework will create high quality reviewing processes for different fields of GMO impact assessment and address the need for a well documented, transparent and sustainable representation of these reviewing processes. This will provide valuable and accessible information addressing the main issues associated with GMOs and enabling risk assessors, policy makers, managers, scientists and the general public to reiterate and update their evaluations and conclusions on GMOs.
