At a high-level event in Brussels hosted by the European Technology Platform ‚Plants for the Future‘ (Plant ETP) in collaboration with Mr. Jasenko Selimović, Member of the European Parliament, Managing Director Dr. Steffen Noleppa presented the results of the latest HFFA Research GmbH study. The study provides science-based but well-understandable quantitative and qualitative information on the numerous benefits plant breeding is offering to societies. The results should help to better inform and facilitate an unbiased public debate on the importance of historic, current and future genetic crop improvements for specific socio-economic and environmental objectives.
