Project description

How much pressure the progress in agrobiotechnology and the current European regulation exerts on the Flemish agro-business is unknown. Therefore this project analyzes the criteria underlying the different viewpoints of the industrial sector, with intentions to evaluate the choices made concerning GM applications in Flanders.
