The Agriculture & Food Systems Institute and ILSI Japan co-organized a workshop on November 7 in Tokyo. Building on previous collaborations related to the risk assessment of products of modern biotechnology, this workshop focused on topics relevant to the environmental risk assessment of GE plants. Dr. Andrew Roberts, Deputy Executive Director, delivered a presentation on approaches to facilitate data transportability for the purpose of ERA. Other speakers shared how data transportability is addressed in the European Union, Argentina, and Japan.
