Open round table on the ethics of gene editing

The Roundtable is organised in the context of the forthcoming Opinion on the ethical implications of gene editing currently under preparation by EGE

On 16 October 2019, the European Commission and the European Group on Ethics in Science and New Technologies will convene a public round table on the ethics of gene editing.

The event will gather a broad spectrum of stakeholders drawn from academia, industry, policy and civil society, to discuss the ethical questions raised by recent developments in gene editing, such as CRISPR-Cas9, across all domains of application including human health, agriculture, and the environment.
