on general conclusions and recommendations

from three scientific projects


16 APRIL 2018


Hotel Devín

Riečna 4, Bratislava, Slovak Republic



On April 16, 2018 G-TwYST organises a conference on general conclusions and recommendations from three scientific projects: G-TwYST, GRACE and GMO90+. 

G-TwYST and GRACE (GMO Risk Assessment and Communication of Evidence), both European Commission funded research projects, and GMO90+, a research project financed by the French government, conducted short and long term feeding trials with GM maize NK603 and MON810. The studies were to constitute a base on which to develop guidance on the conduct and analysis of 90-day subchronic toxicity, 1-year chronic toxicity and 2-year carcinogenicity studies and to comparatively evaluate their value for GMO risk assessment. The three projects included extensive stakeholder engagement activities.



The aim of this conference is to present general conclusions and recommendations from the feeding studies and discuss the challenges in performing and analysing toxicity and carcinogenicity studies, as well as possible ways forward.


Registration, venue and hotel
