Exploratory Workshops on Novel Techniques in Crop Breeding and Livestock


Novel techniques in crop breeding and livestock

Modern breeding methods as well as novel techniques such as phenotyping, genotyping and Crispr-Cas9 can speed up the breeding of crops and livestock. However, these techniques do raise questions which are related to the use of big data, the definition of genetically modified organisms (GMO’s) ownership and intellectual property rights.

Exploratory workshops

FACCE-JPI already organised a number of relevant exploratory workshops.

The events brought together researchers, stakeholders, policy makers and representatives of related initiatives and experts representing different involved sectors and actors. The workshops sessions included key speakers’ introductory lectures to address the research, stakeholders, end-users and policy perspective and breakout sessions focused on gap/limitations and opportunities/strengths. Furthermore there were group discussions on relevant key subtopics. The conclusion and plenary discussion were addressed to identify specific recommendations for FACCE-JPI future contributions and actions in this field.
