An interesting EU40 discussion on New Breeding Techniques (NBTs). June 9th at 14:30 (CET), as part of our #EU40Talks.
We are excited to talk about innovation, sustainability, and explore what NBTs are and how we can make sure to 'harvest' the most out of it with the due respect. A timely discussion, as the European Commission has issued its new paper, and the European Parliament will have to take a position on the matter in the upcoming months.
