Plant biotechnology involves genetic manipulation to improve crops, contribute to sustainable agriculture, and sustain food supplies as well as to provide pharmaceutical products. While the current focus is mostly on genetic engineering, the area also comprises traditional methods of breeding, mutagenesis, classical, molecular and quantitative genetics (mapping, marker assisted selection), in vitro cultures and uses of different biological agents. Safety of genetic engineering products both for consumers and environment are also important aspects of the research. Our idea is to provide reliable knowledge on both plant biotechnology benefits and risks posed to environment, human health and economy.
Risk assessment – mandates, opinions, statements, guidance documents, annual and strategic plans provided by Member States.
Each submission receives a digital object identifier (DOI), requires metadata acknowledging authors and contributors and has a license specifying the conditions of use.
In this way the reuse of any object deposited can be tracked by the provider.
The content of this repository can be used by EFSA’s panels and working groups and any other interested parties when preparing for new risk assessments.
The EuroMix project will deliver a mixture test strategy and test instruments using novel techniques as recently proposed by the Joint Research Centre (JRC) of the European Commission. The tests will result in data needed for refining future risk assessment of mixtures relevant to national food safety authorities, public health institutes, the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA), the European Chemical Agency (ECHA), industry, regulatory bodies and other stakeholders. Ultimately, this will provide information for future risk management decisions on the safety of chemicals in mixtures to be taken by the European Commission and the Codex Alimentarius.
To build the Agroforestry Knowledge Cloud (KC) that will foster knowledge exchange by integrating and synthesizing existing pools of information. It will include knowledge coming from the Regional Agroforestry Innovation Networks (RAINs): innovative practices and experiences as well as regional, national and international project results, grey and scientific literature. All the available resources will be gathered into this state-of-the-art Knowledge Cloud repository that will work as a source of knowledge and experience on innovative agroforestry practices at EU level.
A sustainable world is one in which human needs are met equitably without sacrificing the ability of future generations to meet their needs and without harm to the environment and ecosystem function and service. Meeting this formidable challenge requires a substantial effort under climate change impact, economic development and population growth. British Journal of Environment and Climate Change (ISSN: 2231–4784) aims to publish original research articles, review articles and short communications. This is a quality controlled, peer-reviewed, open access INTERNATIONAL journal. It has long been recognized that the long-term viability of natural capital is critical for many areas of human endeavour under climate change impact. The aims are to support engineering science research with the goal of promoting sustainable development with environmentally benign engineered systems that support human well-being and that are also compatible with sustaining natural (environmental) systems. All relevant research work of engineering science and natural science that seeks to balance society's need to provide sound environmental management and ecological protection related to climate change are encouraged to submit. As the use of systems engineering approaches is highly encouraged, the principal general research areas of this forum include but are not limited to the following thematic topics:
• Environmental Systems and Sustainable Development
• Environmental Pollution, Climate Change, Risk Assessment, and Human Health
• Green Building, Green Infrastructure, and Climate Change Impact
• Climate Change Impacts on Environmental Ecological, and Water Resources Systems
• Water Sustainability and Climate Change
• Agricultural Sustainability and Climate Change
• Urban Sustainability and Stormwater Management under Changing Climate
• Mitigation and Adaptation of Climate Change by Green Production, Pollution Prevention and Control
• Dynamics of Coupled Natural and Human Systems Under Climate Change Impacts
• Unique Interactions between the Environmental System, Climate Change, Land Use, Ecosystem Function and Services
British Journal of Environment and Climate Change will have 4 issues per year. Each issue will be running issue and all officially accepted manuscripts will be immediately published online. State-of-the-art running issue concept gives authors the benefit of 'Zero Waiting Time' for the officially accepted manuscripts to be published.
