Symposium Green Genetic Engineering

Symposium: Green genetic engineering, yes - but how

Applications of green genetic engineering and the new genomic techniques (gene scissors) are discussed in a highly emotional and controversial manner, primarily in Germany. Legal requirements hinder their scientific and economic applications in the European Union. The EU Commission has recognized this and would like to present a draft amendment to the Genetic Engineering Act by November 2022. Our symposium falls exactly at this time. It will certainly be an exciting and informative event.

The symposium is organized by the GDCh together with DECHEMA and the Green Genetic Engineering Association. The moderation of the event will be in the hands of Klaus-Dieter Jany, board member of the Senior Expert Chemists. The event will take place at DECHEMA in Frankfurt and will start at 1:00 p.m. Registration is required. Online registration is possible from September 1st via the official website of the GDCh.
