Join the Nobel laureates supporting genetic modification

110 Nobel Laureates have written an open letter to Greenpeace and every UN Ambassador urging an acknowledgement that GMO technology is basically safe and should be supported for the sake of the Developing World, who desperately need better yielding crops with added nutritional value.

They need as much support as we can get to make this campaign a success. Please check the website and join us by signing on. We all need to speak out if we are to stop the lies and misrepresentation of science that are being promulgated by the GMO opposition.

Events organised by our EFB Institutional Members & Partners


Voice of the Future 2017 : Royal Society of Biology
15 March 2017. London, UK

Voice of the Future, organised by the Royal Society of Biology, offers a unique opportunity for young scientists to ask MPs about the science policy issues that matter to them. This event mimics the format of a real Select Committee, except this time the roles are reversed. Committee seats will be occupied by young scientists, whilst MPs will sit in the witness seats ready to answer your questions. We invite RSB members, aged between 18 and 35, to email events@rsb.org.uk with science policy questions for MPs by Friday 17th February.
