Held jointly with the Royal Society of Edinburgh.
Ensuring everyone has enough to eat is one of this century’s global challenges. Promising techniques and technologies including selective breeding and GM technologies can develop crops that can grow in difficult, changing conditions. Scotland’ researchers are well-placed to develop this technology. Yet almost a third of people in the UK feel that the risks of GM crops outweigh the benefits. Is this true? Do we need to take another look at technologies such as GM?
