Sustainable Introduction of GMOs into European Agriculture (SIGMEA)
IPTS is involved in the project “Sustainable Introduction of GMOs into European Agriculture” (SIGMEA) funded by the Sixth Framework Programme of the European Commission for 2004-2007. The objective of SIGMEA is to set up a science-based framework, strategies, methods and tools for assessing ecological and economic impacts of GM crops and for effective management of their development within European cropping systems.
The project has brought together expert groups from several Member States.
IPTS is the lead body for a work package dealing with the socio-economic dimension of GM crops in Europe.
Expected by 2007.
