Prof Joyce Tait involved in new OECD workshop


Prof Tait, Scientific Advisor at the ESRC Innogen Centre, has been invited to participate as the Rapporteur in an OECD Workshop on "The Future of Environmental Biotechnology: Science, Technology, Policy and Society".

The Workshop is designed to address a number of key issues related to biotechnology innovations impacting the environment. The results of the Workshop discussions, together with a number of case studies and the country policy reviews distributed beforehand, will be used to develop the first version of an OECD Policy Report on critical issues in environmental biotechnology. The Workshop will also help define the way forward for improving delivery of innovation-led green growth through uses of biotechnology in the environment. It will be held in Italy in September 2010.
