G-TwYST allows for a broad range of stakeholders (industry, professional organisations, civil society organisation, competent authorities, and members of the academia etc.) to engage in all key steps of the project in an inclusive and responsive manner and provides for utmost transparency of what is done and by whom it is done. Moreover, the comprehensive stakeholder consolations reports allow all stakeholders to track how their comments are processed by the scientists in G-TwYST. Thereby, the research process will be fine-tuned and the results and conclusions will not only undergo a traditional scientific peer review but also an extended stakeholder review process.


The stakeholder engagement and communication activities of G-TwYST include:

  1. A stakeholder engagement and communication strategy.
  2. Stakeholder consultations.
  3. Publication of results in an open access journal linked with a discussion forum.
  4. Several dissemination activities and feed-back on the process.


Maximum transparency is a core value in G-TwYST. This principle is applied to study plans, raw data, interpretation of those data, key results as well as to the senior scientists, who have been asked to declare their interests and activities in the field of GMOs and food safety research on a voluntary basis.
